Jon Wilson, Kevin Mackett, Bruno Freitas have created a new open source of retro gaming device called the KADE miniConsole+ that is open source and capable of allowing you to play retro games on a wide variety of platforms using your preferred game controller.
KADE has been designed to connect to a wide variety of different retro game pads and controllers thanks to its incorporated plug and play detection. On arrival the KADE is ready to play out of the box and requires no programming to set it up.
The open source KADE miniConsole+ is now available to pledge for from £49 overrun the Kickstarter crowdfunding website and provides an easy way for you to play retro games on almost any platform using your favourite controller.
“The miniConsole+ is easy to use and works out of the box, no programming is necessary. Simply plug a controller into one end of miniConsole+ and a system into the other end and voila! you’re ready to play. You can play all your favourite games as they were designed to be played with your favourite original controllers.
The device has been in development for 2 years already and has gone through a great number or revisions, redesigns and prototypes. We’re really excited to announce the KADE miniConsole+ and its ground-breaking capabilities. We hope that you will support us on our journey by backing our Kickstarter project so we can make this happen.
We think our prototype device looks pretty neat in a shiny black aluminium case. We’re exploring other presentation options and labeling too. The exciting stuff happens inside the case!”
