PaperCart - Make an Atari 2600 that plays QR codes
« on: September 16, 2018, 17:12:35 PM »
This is just fascinating! A game console that plays paper games?!  A Raspberry Pi project that merges retro gaming with QR codes for some reason.  Check the video below and this blog:  https://www.codedojo.com/?p=2251

Ridiculous, but fun.

The best part of this video for me is that I now realize that Stampede was the game I played at a friend's house growing up. I kept remembering a game with a lasso running around but didn't know what it was. Going to pick up a copy of that.
