Inspired by the portable Pocket Repeat game of yore, MAKE reader Mauricio writes in with his version of the Mintronics Memory Game Weekend Project. Mauricio uses the same ATmega328P-PU microcontroller found in the MintDuino kit, but he opted to solder up his circuit on a piece of perfboard instead of using multiple breadboards. The result reminds me at first glance of a Nintendo N64 controller, with two D-pad-like layouts with the analog stick in the middle. And the RGBY LEDs are a direct nod to the color configuration of the original Simon electronic game.
Thanks for writing in Mauricio! And be sure to sign up below for the Weekend Projects Newsletter, to receive the projects before anybody else does, get tips, see other makers’ builds, and more.
