Play thousands of retro games on this open-source handheld

GameShell Kit

Gaming has been a proprietary industry for a long time, but recently modders and programmers have banded together to change that. GameShell is an open-source portable gaming console that’s more powerful, customizable and versatile than other handhelds on the market.

The GameShell Kit can play thousands of games from Super Nintendo, Gameboy Advance, Playstation, Sega and more. Plus it comes pre-installed with indie games including Cave Story. It can also connect to your TV, and it runs Linux so it can be used as a mini computer.

Besides the ability to play countless games, GameShell also supports a variety of programming languages and includes WiFi and bluetooth capabilities, a rechargeable battery, and a modular and fully-customizable open-source hardware build. The regular price is $199, but GameShell is on sale for $142.99 — or 28% off. It’s also available in Yellow and Red colors.

Prices are subject to change.
