i'd like to build something with an ESP32 in it, and good battery life (maybe even replaceable rechargeable AAs.). but i have no experience doing that sort of thing from scratch (though i still play with the bitbox from time to time, so i have some software abilities).
i have a GB, but rarely play it. i'm waiting for my children to get older...
The ESP is a pretty handy little chip, but I don't think it had any LCD peripheral driver built in; it does have SPI etc etc, and you can get some LCDs that have SPIC and I2C interfaces (some even with basic primitives like blit, rectangle, fill, fonts, etc), so you know.. not a bad idea. Wouldnm't be optimal, but could be fun I forget how fast they are.. faster than they ought to be at any rate The wifi is pretty good ..
I was going to make a wifi-modem for retro computers... and then a couple people beat me to the punch; really fun stuff!
