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.

Gameduino 3X adds a bright touchscreen to the Arduino. Its state-of-the-art BT816 embedded GPU lets you create graphics, audio and video for your applications and games. It is by far the most capable graphics shield for the Arduino, and many find it the easiest to use.
