Atari 520ST Emulator on Teensy 4.0

Jean Marc is using the Teensy 4.0 and a wide angle LCD screen to run an Atari 520ST emulator and play classic games.

This pocket-sized retro gaming emulator by Jean Marc packs a punch, supporting five classic gaming consoles: the Atari2600, the Philips Videopac/Odyssey, the Colecovision, the NES and the Atari800. Jean Marc uses a Teensy 4.0, a TFT LCD screen, an analog joypad and a few buttons to create a system that can play classic games including RoboCop, Rick Dangerous and Red Heat.

Part one of the Teensy 4.0 Atari build video is above. You can see the rest of the build plus examples of it in action in the second video below. You can find Jean-Marc’s code for this fantastic retro computing project on his GitHub, along with pictures of his wiring and build processes.
