Live the dream: build your own rig with this DIY game console kit

Daily Dot Store

Build and play six games in one!

For some gamers, playing games isn’t enough. Don’t just play—build your own rig with this DIY game console kit.

Everything you need to build this console is included from the parts to the code. This new design is much easier to play than similar models, and the battery tucks away inside. Once built, you can play hours of Tetris, Snake, and a racing and shooting game. But if you’re game crazy, don’t worry. You can easily program in new games if you’ve got the gumption. 

Learn how to code and build while playing your favorite retro titles with this DIY game console kit. It’s available on the Daily Dot Store for only $17.99 (regularly $23.99).
