A MicroPython gaming system featuring a Wemos D1 mini, OLED display, joystick, buttons, fancy LEDs and a buzzer.

This project was inspired my my advanced computer programming class at Kentucky Country Day School. This class consist of all high school seniors that took AP computer science last year. It began when we were learning python and I told the kids about micro python. Then we designed our original prototype. The GamerGorl was named by Katie E and is a reference to Gru in Despicable Me. The GamerGorl has an OLED display, an A and B button, a Xbox controller joystick, cool LEDs and a surface mount buzzer. Its brain is the Wemos D1 mini (on the underside of the board). The case was designed by Jack R using Fusion 360 and printed on a Prusa Mk3.”
