“The Game Board is designed to stack directly on top of the Video Critter or Video Critter Hi-Res boards, creating an entire audio/video system you can hold in your hand. It provides a USB connection for programming, and 8 buttons and 2 LEDs for creating your user interface.

The board is layed out like many popular video game controllers with four navigation sytle buttons on the left, two A – B buttons on the right, and two auxiliary buttons in the center.

The kit also includes 4 nylon spacers and a 10-pin header (not pictured). The mounting holes on the Game Board line up with the mounting holes on the Video Critter or Video Critter Hi-Res, so a #4 screw can be used to attach them with the nylon spacer between the boards. The Game Board attaches to the first 10 pins of the I/O header on the Video Critter or Video Critter Hi-Res, so a 10 pin header is provided for this. “Link & details.

Looks good for $39 – I’ll get one and do a review soon (if anyone else does first, just email me and we’ll post your review).
