Looking for donor Game Gears for new project
« on: August 28, 2014, 12:40:42 PM »
I hope this is the right place for a request of this nature. I thought either here or the Technician Lab area but this isn't a post about the actual project.

So, I've got a new idea in mind with an aim to reduce motion blur on the Game Gear display. This will go hand in hand with an LED backlight mod. Investigating whether I can apply the motion blur reduction to the Game Gear tech is the next step.
I'm just putting the feelers out for some units to work on. These can be in any state really, preferably in some kind of working order.
If anyone has a scruffy old unit (or two) they want to get rid of then I'd be very interested.

Cheers

Great stuff! That would be awesome.

I had a root through the loft today and found three Atari Lynx IIs. Unfortunately they're all faulty. If I can fix them I can look at applying the same concept to those :-)

Give us a shout mate
