I received a lot of positive responses from my last “In the Maker Shed” videos, so I decided to do another. This time it’s the Mignonette game system. It’s really easy to make, and a lot of fun to program. You can pick one up in the Maker Shed.

Mignonette is a do-it-yourself electronic game console to learn about soldering, microcontrollers, and game programming. Inspired by the Mignon Game Kit that was done in Germany several years ago. Extended upon their wonderfully simple design to include a bicolor display, as well as a completely new software library for making games.
