DIY tech blog Adafruit shows us the combined beauty of 3D printing, micro controllers, and the nostalgic gaming retro skies of Super Mario Bros.
The blue pixelated skies of the original Super Mario Bros. is as nice a view as they come. And if you could wear it around your neck? That would be better, and is exactly what you can do with Adafruit’s 3D printed pendant, which plays an animated scene of the Super Mario Bros. clouds.
Shaped in the appropriate visage of a Nintendo Gameboy, Adafruit inserted their custom-made microcontroller, the Pro Trinket, as the base for this unique piece of jewelry. The Pro Trinket measures 1.5″ x 0.7″ x 0.2” around. Tiny, but featuring enough processing power to run the 1.44? LCD display that’s playing the looping animation.
The process requires a little soldering know how, along with the use of a 3D printer, but Adafruit’s simple step-by-step video can easily guide you into rocking your own pendant.
