We know some of you master the trade of tinkering and thus create things that for non-tinkers are otherworldly and foreign. To be able to build something from scratch or upcycle something that was previously a popular gadget, is an art that more and more people are mastering. To build your own gaming system is something that most people would like to be able to do, but don’t quite have the knowledge. Well, until this new DIY gamer kit was unveiled.
Any respectable geek knows that to be able to customize your gadgets, whether you build them yourself or bought them, is the only way to roll. That is exactly what the people over at Technology Will Save Us, know. They have put together this DIY gamer kit which will enable you to build your very own handheld gaming system. Sure, it might not be a handheld PS4 or anything even remotely close, but it sure has some geek points incorporated into it, if you know what I mean.
The DIY gamer kit is one of those really cool little things that you can tinker with if you have a few hours to spare. As it turns out, building your own handheld gaming system isn’t that hard and only takes about 40 different parts. The screen included in the DIY gamer kit has a resolution of 8 x 8 pixels (hardly GTA V standard) but offers some interesting customization.
The DIY gamer kit even comes with a system which enables you to code your own games on it. The screen resolution hardly gives you much freedom when it comes to graphics, but that too has its charm, if I may say so myself. You can pre-order this kit now over at its dedicated product page, and it will set you back a mere £50. Not a bad price tag on something that you can customize into however many different things you want. On top of that, you will get to build your own handheld gaming system and learn (to some extent) how it all works. That’s what being a geek is all about.
