This neat little device is an open-source GameBoy you can build yourself (it’s fully DIY – do it yourself). Besides being a cool retro handheld device, MAKERbuino is also an educational device shaped like a game console.
It’s a great (and also fun and cool) tool for learning and/or teaching various forms of STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics). Solder your own game console, play cool retro games, learn STEM through fun and interesting tutorials, make the game of your dreams, share with a large community.
In the MAKERbuino kit, you’ll get all the components needed to build and program your own game console!
A detailed guide with lots of pictures is included to make assembly super-easy: http://build.makerbuino.com/.
Age 11+ is advised. Average build time: 5 – 6 hours (depending on user’s skill level).
The design is fully open source, programmable in Arduino and compatible with various Arduino modules. MAKERbuino was designed to make the assembly process as easy as possible – all components are big enough to be soldered by hand and are not sensitive to overheating (which might happen if an inexperienced user is soldering).
You’ll need additional basic tools and equipment for assembling your MAKERbuino. You can get them in almost any better tools and electronics store or order a MAKERbuino kit with tools.
You can get all the required tools for USD12.4 if you choose "MAKERbuino kit with tools" option. Included in the kit with tools: - diagonal cutter pliers - screwdriver - some solder - needle nose pliers - snazzy USB soldering iron - USB cable for the soldering iron - metallic soldering iron holder - small sponge (for cleaning the soldering iron)
