Tiny/Portable emulator machine anyone? :D

Sun Aug 05, 2012 4:00 am

Hey all,

Couldn't hide my excitement over this working tonight! I received my Adafruit 2" LCD TV today. I was worried that GPIO 5v pin wouldn't be able to deliver enough amperage to drive the display but I was wrong. I have the Raspberry Pi powered via Micro USB, and then the display connected to pins 2 and 6 on the board.

The display is incredibly sharp and bright. I'm thinking of hooking up some batteries and making a portable arcade console, or just making a scale model bartop arcade machine with it :)

That looks awesome.

That does it, time to blow the dust off my miniature (3.5") screen and get hacking away!
