The Gamebuino META lets gamers to play the great pixelated games they loved on a compact device and learn programming to make their own games. The Gamebuino META fits in a pocket, packs plenty of free exclusive games, and the battery will last through a continuous day of gaming. An optional micro SD card can fit more games than you can play, and players can switch between games in a matter of seconds.
Let's look at how to use your console. For more information on what the Gamebuino is, head over to this page.
Your console was not only designed as a gaming console. We took the time to turn this product into a creation tool. You can create your own games in C++! Setting up the environment is simple, and the possibilities of games are endless. Making games on the Gamebuino is for all levels, beginners and experts alike.
On the back of your Gamebuino, there are a series of input and output pins. These are all the Arduino pins. These allow you to do electronics with your console. This is the layout of the pins:
If this interests you, go ahead and print it, it is of great help ;)
We also have a backpack made to develop backpacks! It is called the developer backpack.
This cheap extension allows you to split up all the pins on the back so you have an easy-to-use test circuit directly on the Gamebuino. It is also compatible with Arduino shields.
You can own one here!
Making your own backpack
So you had an idea for a backpack. Then, you designed it with the developer backpack. You tested it. You improved it. Now what? Well you could print it's own PCB to directly place on the Gamebuino. Maybe even sell it. We want to help you create, so here are some files that will help you :)
