If you fantasized about creating our own video game as a kid, there was probably something stopping you (math homework, Saved By the Bell, dinnertime). But now that fantasy can become reality with the DIY gamer kit ($48) from Technology WIll Save Us.
Here's how it works: using the kit, build your own handheld gaming console in about two hours. (Make sure to read the manual from the website or watch the how-to video to get acquainted with the bolts, nuts, and other components.) Then follow the rest of the online instructions to learn how to use the platform Arduino to code physical objects.
Next, use the custom software library to test out features and create a killer animation. Step four? Well, that's easy. Experiment, invent, and let that imagination run wild!
