The XGameStation Micro – a homebrew games console for learning hardware development on. Graphics are similar to an Atari 2600; the processor is more powerful; it takes standard nine-pin joysticks and comes with documentation and emulators for development. Really nifty – not sure I could spend that much given limited programming skills, but it’s a fantastic idea: giving developers a limited (but functional) platform that harks back to old 8-bit systems. I’ll be keeping an eye on their upcoming projects.
