Was very tired after coming back from work today but this project gave me some more energy. I didn’t had a 12 pin right angle female header so I used two stackable 8 pin ones cut to size to make one.
I cut the end of one of the key pegs and melted a pin from a male header into it and then soldered it to secure the key peg.
I did a mockup of the flash cart and original USB cable inserted at the same time (required for flashing from PC side) There’s not much spacing but with a proper PCB or different wiring a thin flash cart case should be possible.
I’ll save the expansion connector wiring for tomorrow when I’m less tired
I thought that connection equipment such as cradle might be necessary, only thinking of installing the 12 pin header at the bottom.
It was lucky that the back plate was designed to be symmetrical top and down…
Wow that’s cool.
To be honest, the original face plate is cooler than anything.
If the faceplate is not broken, there is no reason to replace it.
The other day, I got the ADVENTURE version of Arduboy, so I am going to look for the M1.6 x 4 screw.
All credits go to @n602 for the back. I think I’ll be changing the faceplates frequently (or I need to get more Arduboys ). I like the 3D printed ones too as it has less display glare and diffuses the RGB LED and Rx / Tx LEDs nicely.
This setup spends a lot of time on my mind.
I was just thinking you could add a second set of headers to the bottom and make a dock with VGA, Line Audio and a Bluetooth capable Arduino for wireless controller.
Switch is taken but you could play with the name ARDUinoBoySwITCH
