When you were just a youngin', did you ever wish that your ViewMaster could show video instead of just static pictures? Well, there seems to be at least one DIY'er out there who shares the dream. An enterprising gadgeteer named Pyrofer has modded an old TomyTronic stereoscopic game "system" (just a glorified Tiger LCD handheld, really) with 128 x 128 LCD screens, and is using the device to display a self-contained, Propeller-chip-based 3D game he's working on. The entire system fits inside the housing of the TomyTronic, and is powered by three AA batteries. Check the video after the break to kinda-sorta see the project in action.
