    DIY Tamagotchi - Build a Virtual Pet

    element14 Presents  |  DJ Harrigan's VCP Profile  |  Project Videos



    Do you love the 90’s? Do you miss your first pet? We’re not talking about a cat or a dog, we’re talking about a digital pet! It might not seem like much now, but in 1997 when the Tamagotchi came to the US, it was quite the sensation. Filled with nostalgia for this classic gadget, but sorely lacking one, in today’s episode, DJ sets out to create his own digital companion in the style of gadgets from a bygone era.
