Arduboy has a big limitation with the size of the games that can be installed inside.
Good thing is that Arduboy has a fast CPU that can manage compressed images/audio with a good frame rate (> 30 fps). I’m working on a demo/game to show these features
By using the USB CDC serial library from Teensy, you can stream up to 1 Mbps. This makes it easy to achieve 60-120 frames per second, as the standard library from Arduino is very slow. You can find a comparison here:
This is really cool! You might be able to use this to display like information about the PC it is running on
Like CPU load and temperature. And you could render it all on the PC side and maybe even allow it to display a video when no button is pressed for like 5 minutes or something
@igvina No idea if you’re still working on this, but could you publish/upload the code in its current incomplete state? Been trying to display some bitmaps on the Arduboy over serial recently and I’ve kind of hit a brick wall (that and the Arduboy actually bricking ). Really interested in how you’ve achieved this. thanks.
