Few designs might be referred to as timeless and iconic sufficient to translate properly into miniature variations of themselves. Horses is obviously the main one, however the ThinkTiny, a miniature model the Lenovo ThinkPad comes fairly shut. Created by Paul Klinger, the ThinkTiny makes use of the laptop computer’s iconic red TrackPoint nub as a joystick for traditional arcade video games like Snake, Tetris, and Lunar Lander.
The tiny laptop computer runs on an ATtiny1614 microcontroller and contains a 128 x 64 OLED display screen. It’s all housed in a 3D-printed case that’s full with a glowing “Think” emblem. Sadly, the ThinkTiny can’t run Doom or Crysis, however there’s a neat little Mandelbrot fractal explorer.
Gizmodo says Klinger doesn’t plan to promote the ThinkTiny, which is comprehensible contemplating the toy’s manufacturing time, to not point out the truth that it may incur some tiny lawsuits from Lenovo. But if you wish to attempt to make it your self, Klinger has generously posted the complete code and design information on his GitHub page. The code may also be used to construct a TinyPC, a gaming PC that runs many of the identical video games because the ThinkTiny, plus one further Breakout sport. This one lights up and adjustments colours because the video games get more durable.
