Q: I want to hack Tamagotchis, what hardware do I need?

The current hackable Tamagotchi is the TamaTown Tama-Go, you can find information on where to buy a compatible one here. You’ll also need a programming board, you can buy one here. A few people have also succeeded in building their own Tamagotchi-programming interface.

Q: I love the True Bugs Wait posters, can I buy them?

I don’t sell the posters, but they’re posted in printable format so that anyone can use them. Go ahead and print as many as you want!

If you really want to support my work, consider buying a Tamagotchi Programming Board. They work as Lilypad USB Arduinos and have a cool design on the back!

  1. Hi! I want to start off by saying that I’ve been following your blog and am impressed by your work. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

    I have a question about the Tamagotchi Friends. I have yet to get my hands on one, since I am awaiting the U.S. release, but would like to know if it is physically possible to fit 4 LEDs around the screen or implement some other kind of backlight alternative. Is there actually space to do this?

    Thanks for reading my question and I’ll be waiting for your reply! Feel free to either contact me on my Tumblr or Tama Talk. It’s greatly appreciated! Thank you once again.

    Thanks for teaching young trainers to p3wn! I’m older so I didn’t catch what arch the Tamagorchi tend to use on your recent Embedded.fm podcast, or whether Capstone has definition files for it; General Magic?
