Greig Stewart aka Theramin Hero recently released a video of an LED matrix cube displaying an emulated version of NES Castlevania. And it’s looks awesome.
The whole thing was accomplished by linking together six Adafruit 64×64 LED matrix screens using a Raspberry Pi 4 and a customized software emulator. While it’s not a way I’d recommend we experience these classic games, it sure is an amazing proof of concept and I hoep to see more of Greig’s work in the future!
Here’s a detailed post of the entire build, which even shows the 3D-printed parts necessary to make it all happen!: https://www.element14.com/community/community/halloween/blog/2019/10/31/nes-castlevania-on-an-led-matrix-cube
The only thing missing from vintage gaming is a third dimension, right? Well, our @E14Community took care of that by wrapping a 2D game around the outside of a cube! #AvnetReachFurther https://t.co/mGlVCFrGKm pic.twitter.com/mMQ7SxIyLW
