+ - Gameduino: "Ridiculously Awesome"-> 1

Submitted by

beckman101 writes "Gameduino is a DIY game platform built on a shield for the Arduino. It'(TM)s open source hardware (BSD and, for the code, GPL). Okay, that’s fairly cool. But what makes this project special is that this inexpensive board has hardware that'(TM)s capable enough to be interesting. The result is a lo-fi game console built on an FPGA that gives you retro graphics without being, you know, too retro. Games actually look good."

consoles — and later built fast graphics systems at SGI, 3dfx, and
NVIDIA. I currently use the Arduino at an open source robotics company.
In my spare time I have been putting these two together, and the result
is the Gameduino: essentially a GPU for the Arduino. What it lacks in
horsepower it makes up for in hackability: it's completely open source.

Show me a man who is a good loser and I'll show you a man who is playing golf with his boss.
