In 2006, I built a game console for my senior project in college. I modeled it on the 2D consoles like Sega Genesis and SNES. Last year, I started transforming it into an Arduino-based system. Now I have completed it, after a year's work.
Has graphics, audio, USB gamepad, and SD card support.
Capabilities are comparable to Super Nintendo.
More comprehensive than other Arduino or AVR-based game systems.
Compatible with multiple Arduino boards.
Aimed at hobbyists who would like an easy way to develop games on a console.
Doing this as a part-time project of my own.
Background in embedded systems.
Working as software engineer at a major Silicon Valley tech company.
