This device is based on easy-to-find components and programmed in Arduino – one of the most popular DIY microcontroller platforms. It’s open-source, hackable and easily customizable with additional hardware components and custom casings.

In the basic MAKERbuino kit, you’ll get all the components needed to build and program your own game console.
