MAKERbuino is a DIY game console that's being introduced to the world through a Kickstarter crowdsourcing campaign to raise funds for sharing MAKERbuino kits.
The hackable, customizable 8-bit console system offers both entertainment and educational value, as it will teach those who take on the DIY project everything from the basics of 3D printing to programming, soldering and more.
Once the building of the console has been finished, gamers are able to play an assortment of retro games that are pre-loaded onto an SD card. Players also have the option of engaging in multiplayer games, downloading new ones from the MAKERbuino open-source games gallery or even building their own. In total, the inventive DIY game console can be built in just about five hours for a cost of around $35.
