Your One-Stop Shop For Coding, Hacking And Playing Your Own Video Games
This DIY Gamer Kit now available at Firebox may just be our be-all-end-all of crafty geek ambitions.
This is Arduino Uno with custom PCB shield 64-pixel LED matrix is an all-encompassing crucible of intermediate independent video game design. Yes, it comes with the classic minimalist games BREAKOUT and SNAKE pre-instlaled – let’s be honest, as much for quick-and-dirty source code transitions as real entertainment value – but the real appeal lies in a kit that plays the very same games you’ve already originally coded and hacked on it. This handheld hardware comes ready for you to solder together yourself, complete with an IR transmitter for multiplayer support and a handy piezo buzzer for adding sound to your creations.
The next BRAID, BINDING OF ISAAC or SUPER MEAT BOY may be waiting locked somewhere in an ambitious nerd’s imagination waiting for a convenient piece of hardware such as this to open the door.
