Pocket-sized fun is the name of this game, with the Joy Bonnet - our most fun Bonnet ever (no we didn't even think that was possible, either!) This Bonnet fits perfectly on top of your Raspberry Pi Zero (any kind) and gives you adorable hand-held arcade controls. Once you install our script onto your Pi, the controls will act like a keyboard, for easy use with any emulator or media player.
Playing retro games is easy on a Raspberry Pi - and the pocket computer is pretty good at it too! All you need is a little help to connect buttons and a joystick up and you can custom design your own arcade console, desktop or stand-up machine, even just a simple controller box. It makes for a fun weekend project that will last all year. This Adafruit Arcade Bonnet is designed to make small emulator projects a little easier to build. Here's what you can look forward to!
Kung Fu video games are only as good as the controllers used to interact with them. One Finger Death Punch (OFDP) for Steam on the PC is one of those games that's OK to play with a mouse or an XBox controller, but with Wii Nunchuks the fun meter is maxed out! This project shows how you can transform Wii Nunchuks into custom nunchuck controllers for the OFDP video game on a PC using a Nunchucky adapter and Pro Trinket creating what we call the iTapStick!
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.
