PiGRRL 2 - Raspberry Pi 2 Gameboy


This project takes the original concept of the PiGRRL and makes it more powerful, using a Raspberry Pi 2 (or Model B+). It’s about the same size but features more buttons (D-Pad, A,B,X,Y, L, R, pause and start.) and four extra buttons on the PiTFT. It’s sporting a small audio amplifier and speaker, so you can enjoy the crispy sounds of 8-bit goodness.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!





Totally unrelated, but I had some thread about Metal Gear Rising up (which is a sci-fi game about cyborgs if you don’t know) and people are talked about a bit were the protagonist, Raiden, essentially cuts a kid clean across the chest to take out the guy holding at gunpoint from behind, knowing that he can just save the kid by making him a cyborg too (as long as his brain is undamaged, which is where the guy was pointing the gun).

And people are like “hurr I wonder if they gave him a cyborg dick durr”.

Which honestly got me thinking about a transhumanist problem I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone bring up; what happens if you’re a kid, don’t have legal autonomy and your parents could do something like, say, delay your puberty because they think you’re “too young” for sex or think masturbation is sinful and wrong and thus make it impossible to do it?

I never really thought about the impact a transhumanist future could have on kids and parenting before because I always imagine more adult situations. Looking at this Louis Theroux doc and seeing how these parents are literally altering the chemical makeup of their kid’s (and fucking dog’s) brains is a pretty transhumanist situation to begin with. Kids are being diagnosed with ADD and medicated up to the eyeballs for it despite the science and nature of the disorder being pretty god damn grey, so the questions on what parents would do if we could alter their kids physical bodies is a really concerning one. Would these parents, for instance, give their kids lower capacity batteries because they think they’re too active?

Any modification of the body that isn’t essential to save a person’s life should be strictly elective. A child is a parent’s responsibility but not their property and anyone too young to decide for themselves whether they want a particular modification or not must also be too young to undergo it.

My opinion here stands whether discussing bionic augmentation, piercings, tattoos, circumcision, or hormone treatments. Parents do not own their children’s bodies, they are merely responsible for taking care of them until adulthood.

GitS touches on this – one of the reasons Kusanagi is so exceptional is that full-body prosthetics are rare, and the only reason she *has* one is a major accident when she was a little kid. If she had been an adult, it’s questionable whether or not she would have chosen to save herself and she probably would have had a much less mutable sense of body identity (so even if she had ended up with a full-body prosthetic she would have been less comfortable with it – keep in mind that she has a mass-production model that wasn’t based on her original body at all). Yet, the unique skillset that makes her valuable is based on the fact that she’s been using a series of different mass-production full cyborg adult bodies since she was, like, ten and undergoing military training in them.

How this manifests depends strongly on which adaptation we’re talking about. In the Oshii films, Kusanagi is asexual and lacks ‘shame’ – she’s naked all the time because she doesn’t consider her body to be ‘hers’. In the manga, she has a very fluid sexuality and body image. In both, she’s pretty chill about what would normally be extreme bodily violation – losing limbs, for instance. This is something that we can probably attribute to her unique situation regarding her history of cyborgization.

It’s made clear that in the GitS universe this kind of thing is rare even in terms of life-saving emergency care. The doctor who made this decision was going against the grain – kids have horrible accidents all the time but Kusanagi is literally the only full cyborg we ever see in the entire franchise.

The curves of the human figure are offset, or opposed to each other. This is something beginners often get wrong.
