In 2011 the original Gameduino brought vintage gaming to the Arduino.
In 2013 Gameduino 2 set a new standard in hand-held open-source gaming.
Now Gameduino 3 raises the bar again. Even more processing power for your games and applications - plus real video playback, all using a regular Arduino.
It's completely compatible with the Gameduino 2 but adds even more graphics power, smooth video playback, and dozens of new features. Together with microSD storage for Excameragame assets, headphone audio output, and a top quality full-colour 4.3-inch touchscreen
The Gameduino 3 uses an FT810 EVE, an integrated graphics processor that is backwards compatible with the FT800 in Gameduino 2 and has about 4X more power.
