element14's The Ben Heck Show

116 posts
You may have heard of the Game Boy Zero, but instead of building a standard game boy zero, try to fit as many features as you can, into the original DMG gameboy shell!   Essentially it uses a Pi Zero, powerboost 1000c, TFT composite lcd, etc. What can you turn this project into? Perhaps a Game boy Zero with 5 more buttons? How about a a screen dimmer, brightness control, ability to sync 2 together? Whatever the case, can you accept my challenge and build a Game Boy Zero that has more featu ...

New colsole mod idea

Posted by jonio75 Jan 16, 2018
i kniw youve done system combos in the past, but what if you made a magic playstation box, that could play ps1, 2, 3, AND 4 games?! I was thinking that you could either use an original fat ps3, which plays all the first 3 playstation generation games, OR, you could use a super slim ps3, which plays ps1 and 3 games, and a ps2, (if you do this, use 79000 series, way smaller motherboard) and of course both would use a ps4 slim. Some other optional challenges for you include   -seamless integr ...

I would love to see a TIS-100 inspired physical machine:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TIS-100   * A small display over each of the nine cores to show the code. * A larger display to show the input stack and outputs. * The ability to reprogram the cores. * Indicators to show IO between the cores and if the core is blocked * Ability to feed external data to at least one of the cores * Ability to output data externally   If you don't have interest in making one of these s ...

I come up with a design that could work out for the logic game, it solves both splits output into multiple and false connections (e.g. connect an output to another output). The idea is to have a directional wire that can only go from an output to an input and the output side is stackable, so you can direct it into multiple inputs. Here is my design:     I hope this is helpful for the project. ...
Throughout his time on element14, Ben has made a habit of generously gifting his completed builds to community members. His latest random act of kindness was to give cacope a medication reminder device to make his busy mornings a little easier. You've always got to be careful when giving stimulants to children to treat ADHD and if your mornings are as hectic as most people with children running around, there's always a risk you'll forget or in the case of a two parent household, double dose whic ...
Hello, I hope this is the right place to post things like this. I drafted an email last year that I intended to send to you but didn't know where to send it, then got busy with coursework etc., but I finally thought I'd send you my idea and see what you think!   Dear Ben Heck, I have recently come across your show on youtube, and during my easter break (which I should have probably been doing more coursework than I have) I have been binge watching your show... In order to help me to catch ...

Hey Ben I was recently going through some of my old stuff and I came across my sega game gear and tv tuner (broken by the way) but it got me thinking that you and your awesome tech wisdom could make the tv tuner that can only pick up analog signals receive digital so the turner can have a purpose again. Please let me know what you think.   -Austin ...
