Parallax laser range finder / Game Boy printer hack

Posted on Saturday, December 3rd, 2011 in hacks, sensors, vintage by the machinegeek


Joe Grand, developer of the Parallax Laser Range Finder (LRF) presents this hack interfacing the LRF with a vintage Game Boy printer. The project uses the LRF’s onboard camera, along with a few circuit and firmware mods, to allow the user to take snapshots and have them printed by the Game Boy.

Complete source files for this hack along with the description of Joe’s development of the LRF can found on his Grandideastudio website.
