OSHW Gaming

The idea of Open gaming received widespread coverage in 2012 with the Ouya console (https://www.ouya.tv). While not Open Source Hardware, it encouraged a new-generation to start building their own games. This has paved the way for more Open Source products, that provide a great environment to learn how to hack together hardware and code for fun. Here’s a list of commercially available OSHW built around Arduino, with a heavy hit of retro 8-bit gaming (sorted by year first shown). I’ve excluded the systems built on RaspPi, PocketCHIP, etc. – as these are essentially full linux computers running retro-emulators.
