Pi in an Atari 2600 game

Fri Jun 29, 2012 1:16 pm

Hi,

Someone posted a video about how they'd do this but never posted part 2! I went ahead and tried myself, not the best job but better than a bare board. HDMI and GPIO are not accessable but the projects I'm working on I don't need them (at least for now) but I';m sure I could make a neat way of getting at them if needed. Pic on Facebook, album is set to public.

I have finished a case mod using an Atari 2600 cartridge. It's a tight fit, but it works. Here's a zip folder with a 3D SketchUp model complete with measurements and a PDF with details for each side of the cartridge. It also includes images of the cover art and of my first draft/proof of concept (the Dremel work is pretty crude and it's missing the newly designed cover art, but I'm working on the second installment now).

Enjoy!

derrickwaddell: Like it, A little nearer than mine!

Mcfestoe: It's only Asteroids so not really worth much! It's the only cart I have a duplicate of so thought I might as well!

I've designed a basic label and will post pictures when it's on.

Thanks, neufena! I'd like to see yours, but the link doesn't seem to work for me.

No, Mcfestoe. I haven't tried it yet, but I will.

I have a couple of old cartridges I'm going to modify for my 2 x Pi's to go in: Adventure and Dig Dug!

If I remember, I will document the process and provide details & photos either here or on the instructables site of how to do it.

MattPoat - Would you be willing to make me an Atari 2600 Raspberry Pi case?

I would be happy to davidhales but I will say this. Making the case was a lot of fun & I would recommend everyone make their own to make it more personal.

Would love to see your guide and any additional photos you took throughout the process. I would love to attempt this mod / case myself.
