MAKERbuino - a DIY game console


MAKERbuino is a DIY games console to encourage kids to take an interest in creating with technology rather than just playing video games written by other people. It costs the same as a typical newly released game for a games console. 


MAKERbuino comes in kit form and requires soldering. It's targetted at tweens and teens from age 11+. The result is an Arduino compatible retro console with a black and white screen. 

Young people can code their own games and also make use of the library of games for the existing prebuilt GAMEbuino console which inspired the MAKERbuino. 

The kit has been designed by 18 year old Albert Gajšak from Croatia. 

See the MAKERbuino Kickstarter campaign for more details. It's a very well put together campaign that makes a compelling case.
