Ever wanted to create your own game show environment. Hack a Duo Pop Game infrared (IR) receiver so you can create your own game show system using wireless poppers with a PC or Mac computer. This modification allows the IR receiver to interface with both PC and Mac game show software via the USB. This project leverages lessons learned from previous tutorials at adafruit.com involving 1) IR decoding and 2) the virtual USB library. This is a great weekend project for learning about wireless IR protocols and USB communication using the Pro Trinket.
If you have a Pro Trinket you probably know it's the perfect little size for a portable project. This LiPoly backpack makes it really easy to do! Instead of wiring 2 or 3 boards together to make a charging system, this little PCB sits on top of the Pro Trinket and allows a LiPoly/LiIon battery to plug in. When the Pro Trinket USB port is powered, the battery is recharged automatically. Unplug the USB port and the Pro Trinket will switch over to the rechargeable battery.
Pro Trinket combines everything you love about Trinket with the familiarity of the common core Arduino chip, the ATmega328. It's like an Arduino Pro Mini with more pins and USB tossed in, so delicious. Sometimes you just need more pins, more FLASH, and more RAM. That's why we designed Pro Trinket, with 18 GPIO, 2 extra analog inputs, 28K of flash, and 2K of RAM.
