Here’s another project by Mats the handheld PIC24-based CHIP-8 emulator game console:

This is a small handheld PIC24-based CHIP-8 emulator game console. A cheap Noika 1202 LCD is used as the display and a CR123A 3 volt lithium battery for power.

CHIP-8 is an interpreted programming language, developed by Joseph Weisbecker. It was initially used on the COSMAC VIP and Telmac 1800 8-bit microcomputers in the mid-1970s. CHIP-8 programs are run on a CHIP-8 virtual machine. It was made to allow video games to be more easily programmed for said computers.

You can find the project details on github.
