Adafruit Industries just released a new kit version of the Uzebox open-source gaming console -

After many months of looking at NTSC waveforms on my scope (go video-sync trigger!) I have finished the Fuzebox, a fully open-source, DIY 8-bit game console (based on the Uzebox I posted about a while back). It is based almost completely on an ATmega644 with some video encoding help from the AD725.

Check out Cool project with a lot of potential and a neat enclosure – for more info and schematic, kits are available from the Adafruit store – Fuzebox
