Here is GameShell, An Open Source, Linux-powered Retro Game Console

Who said Linux users are all bunch of nerds that can't or don't know how good time, well all me to prove you wrong courtesy of Gameshell. This console is the world’s first modular and portable game console that is loaded with a GNU/Linux embedded OS. Though I can't say I agree with this title, but this device very much looks promising.

It comes with pre-loaded with 2 games, Cave Story and DOOM and it offers many retro emulators, which should enable you to play tons of games from NES, Atari, SNES, GB, etc.

Like I said earlier, it is powered by Linux-based Clockwork OS distro, runs a Quad-Core Cortex-A7 processor, 512MB RAM for temporal storages and Mali GPU. It also comes with a Wi-Fi on-board module and Bluetooth 4.0, with a regular microSD card slot and a micro USB port and above all, top Linux Distros like Ubuntu, Debian, and Raspbian are very much supported.

Mainboard, screen, keypad, battery, and stereo speaker are what made up this little piece of tech and the mainboard is a single-board computer called Clockwork Pi.

Gameshell isn't meant for entertainment alone, it can also be used for programming in several languages such as C, Lua, Python, and Lisp. It is open source so you can modify the code and hardware.

GameShell has already surpassed its Kickstarter funding goal. Currently, it is available in the form of Early Bird reward that needs you to pledge $109. Earlier, it offered a Super Early Bird reward ($89) but it’s not available anymore.
