Hello All,

over the weekend i discovered gameboy cameras on sale at Best
Buy for $9.99.  I dont know whether this is at all stores, or
just the one down the hill from me.

for information, the following excerpt from the archives has
some info and a link or two.

    Russell,

    Try searching the Web for Gameboy Hacking.  There are
several pages
    dedicated to writing games for the GB and GB Colour.  I
have seen
    information about the camera, including internal
pictures.  I believe
    that the 'camera' chiip used is a Mitsubishi Artifical
retina device
    128 x 128 pixels.  The device does several forms of
image processing
    'on-chip' hence the name artificial retina.  Details can
be found on
    Mitsubishi's site.

tm

    Check out the Brookes Sensor page where this link came
from,

    http://www.pacific.net/~brooke/Sensors.html

    Hope this gives you some pointers.

    Dave.

The Gameboy video cameras are being specialed here for $NZ30
(about $US15)
These are a moderately low resolution CMOS b&W video unit
with extra
hardware to work in the gameboy.
Details for PC interfacing these to a PC using a gameboy are
available on
the net.
It should be possible to talk to these directly but I can't
find technical
details from anyone who has done it.
Is anyone aware of an interface directly to these cameras -
using a PIC or
otherwise.

Anyone actually done anything with these?

Following site has tech details about the artificial retina
chip - ARC:

       http://www.lh.co.nz/hardware/ar/techinfo.htm

[NZ, Christchurch - you know these guys, Jinxman?? Just done
the street]

128x128 pixels, 256 grey levels, produces up to 30 frames/sec
using a 500 khz clock. Well within the frequency range of a
PIC, but you need some place to store 128x128=16,384 bytes
of data/frame. Maybe one of the 17Cxxx PICs with direct
memory addressing for frame store.

The ARC has some interesting real-time capability - negative
images, edge enhancement, gain control, variable exposure times,
2-D edge extraction.

Maybe the new scenix chip could handle secondary processing for
a minibot or other app.

Of course. Everyone in NZ knows everyone else. The 30,000,000
sheep are the headache. Nothing worse than forgetting your date's
name. E aroha io

There's more info on the GB camera here, a mirror of another
Mitsubishi site I've seen

http://www.lh.co.nz/hardware/

I picked up two of those cameras earlier in the year when they
were on special and got as far as opening one up, "hmmm, t'riffic"
and putting it back together. I could use a diversion like a camera
i/f about now

You know, for about $15 http://www.computergeeks.com will sell you a parallel port
COLOR camera for which you can probably already find a linux driver...

Ya know, Jinx, you don't have to give away all your secrets.

Hi Bill,

I sure hope the damn driver is easier to find on that site
than the damn camera.

actually, it looks like the cameras are gone, and the only thing left at
that price is video->parallel converters.  Sorry :-(

I've used them with pic. The signal is analog so
you need an A/D

Colour gameboys are on sale at present in NZ - about $NZ110 AFAIR = $US45 or
so.
What do they cost elsewhere?

I'm beginning to think that "Rip-off Britain" really does exist and it's not
just the price of cars and CD's. A Colour Gameboy is 60 quid say $80 though
if you shop around I believe you can get it a little bit cheaper. Lowest
Price I have heard recently is 56 quid. Monochrome Gameboy is 30 quid.

Emigration is looking increasingly attractive ;-)

Walmart also had them for this price.
Anyone figured out how to use the Gameboy printer?

Check on eBay, the online auction. I saw a gameboy with camera go for about
US$28 a couple of months back. http://www.ebay.com and search for "gameboy".
