'[OT]: Old Gameboy Hacking'

I was at a local computer gaming store, and they had one of the old,
original Gameboys on sale for $8 or so.  Does anyone know of interesting
things you can do with them?

You can pay an exorbitant sum to Elektor electronics magazine, and
turn it into a basic oscilloscope.

I have always been a few Dendrites short of an Axon and believe me it
shows.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright

I don't know about the Gameboy, but I still plan to get the Sony
PS console to work as the manual input for a hobby RC transmitter.

There are a lot of pages out there, that deal with stuff you can do with a
Game Boy. Unfortunately I have the links on another Computer, so I'll post
them later here, or you just google vor Game Boy Hardware.
Basically the Game Boy is equipped with a Z80 running at 4MHz. That CPU has
an integrated LCD Controller, serial interface and this stuff...
The connector pins for the cartridges are:
+5V
Clock
WR (LO active)
RD (LO active)
CS of SRAM (LO active)
A0 - A15
D0 - D7
RESET (LO active)
Audio in
GND

I've got a lot of specs downloaded on my hard disk for the Game Boy.
Beneath it are Hardware Specs (circuit plan) and programming specs
(instruction set, way of using these ports for your purpose, etc.), specs of
the cartridges...

MfG,
Do.Pe.

At one point, there were a bunch of tools and stuff available for
reprogramming the OGB and GBC, but a lot seems to have dissappeared
in favor of GBA tools (like, the places selling flash GBC cartridges
and programmers have pretty much disappeared.  The SW tools are still
out there, mostly.)  It's basically a Z80.  Lots of people were writing
their own games, and there were some interesting experiments in making
them into GP electronic tools.  I always thought that a used GB was
about the lowest cost smart LCD graphics display that you were likely
to find, but they've lost ground to used/surplus PDAs, which have
standardized IO ports and more professional development environments.
(Refurbished Palm IIIe for $35 at computergeeks, already talks to
your PC, has rs232, IRDA, and touch screen interfaces, and the palmos
development environment is free and downloadable, and it's a 68k
processor.)

http://www.devrs.com is an excellent resource for Gameboy, Gameboy Advance,
Cybiko, NeoGeo pocket and GP3 console hacking.  It also has a lot of
PIC/Ubicom related stuff.
