Interfacing a Game Boy camera with a TI84 calculator and Arduino

And now for something completely different an a great example of hacking together two completely different worlds with the help of an Arduino, the people at Cemetech have shown how it's possible to display images from a Nintendo Gameboy camera with a Texas Instruments TI84 calculator.

The process only requires the sensor in the camera module, and the Arduino sketch take care of the image conversion to the TI calculator via the standard interface protocol used for cable communications between TI calculators. Considering the resolution of the camera, the results are quite successful - for example:

So if you're looking for something new to do with your TI84, check out the project page for more information. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you need to add external hardware or devices to your next Arduino project, you'll need a protoshield to mount the external circuitry. In doing so, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega we have a wide range to suit your application.
