What’s in your wallet? If it’s not a credit card sized, Arduino powered, Gameboy inspired rectangle of awesome, then you should look into the Arduboy by Kevin Bates (aka bateske). Kevin started this project as a holiday present to show friends, but now he’s developed it into a full-out product available for purchase on Tinde.

I like seeing the progression of the Arduboy from early prototype…

To more refined prototype…

To product.

There have been several games developed for the Arduboy, including Tetris, Space Rocks (an Asteroids clone), Flappy Ball, Breakout, Chess and more. They’ve even started working on a 3D rendering engine, though Kevin admits that the Arduboy may never run something as computationally intense as Quake.
