New Feature Discussion
A little more behind the features
A new screen
An adoption from the Gaboze Pocaio - Plus Edition. The screen is now a 2.6" TFT, which fills the screen area of the Game Boy Pocket shell much better. No more resizing of the video driver output!
Mechanical Adjustment FTW
Although there are many implementations of software based screen brightness adjustment. This model features a thubwheel, which means you don't need to worry about knowing how, or where to put the software based controls.
This also allows for using different Operating Systems and having brightness control out of the box
Through Hole Header
No more loose connections
With the new Raspberry Pi Zero mounting system using a through hole header, you will no longer loosen the pin connection if using an unregulated (non temperature) control soldering iron... ...yay
The short insulation on the header also means you can mount the Raspberry Pi flat against the headers
New Conductive Pads
Better response. Simply put
With a redesigned conductive pad, you can now have a better response rate to your silicon aftermarket pads.
USB peripheral support
No connection? No Problem
This is a 3.3V USB peripheral support, like keyboards (not the LED mechanical ones), older joysticks / gamepads (can you say retro pads!)
One of the most requested features is to be able to use your keyboard and terminal without having to connect to the network, SSH, SCP, or FTP.
Domed and diffused
We replaced the surface mount power indicator LED with a through hole domed and diffused 3mm LED. This fits perfectly in the LED hole of the original and aftermarket Game Boy Pocket shell
