Peanut - A Tiny Arduboy

In between working on the Null 2, I've been making Peanut.
This is the pre-final prototype.

Peanut is a DIY kit that uses modules rather than tiny components so that it’s easier to make.
It comes on a single PCB with the shell attached, simply snap off the shell (like a real peanut) and solder everything down.
You don’t need any glue or screws or 3D printing to make Peanut.

0.96" OLED screen
Injection moulded joystick for a proper arcade feel
Rubber button caps for comfort
Peizo speaker
Small but sturdy power switch
Gold-plated PCB
Tiny - 50x35mm

It uses a 360mAh battery, which lasts up to 12 hours and fully charges in 1 hour.

I’m planning to have kits available for $20 on tindie, which includes everything except the battery.

Okay seriously, shut up and take my money. I have a serious fixation with tiny Gameboys and this is cheap enough that I can justify the purchase!

I had no idea about the Arduboy project until I saw Wermy's video - This looks so damn cool!

$20 asking price is a no questions asked, instant buy for sure!
