The World’s Smallest Game System

In about 2006, Atari sold some key chain games that connected to your TV via RCA jacks.  I am a huge lover of retro games due to the hardware challenges of the time and what clever people were able to build.  For a while now, I’ve wanted to get a tiny CRT screen from an old video camera viewfinder and pair it with these super tiny games.  Finally, I decided to do it (check out the video below!!!).

I went on ebay and grabbed a VF-129 display module board.  This is the Black and white display from an old Sony Handicam.   I looked up the repair manual for that camcorder to see what info I could find out about the module.  They have everything described from adjusting the alignment of the screen to the full-on schematic and PCB art.
