Lightbulb DIY console!

I just picked up the latest PC Gamer (UK) abd it has a feature on a supposedly 'self-makeable'(sp?) console.

For more info, go here .

Apparently you build, design, and program it yourself. And I don't think I'll be picking a kit up. Very time consuming I'd guess. It also looks fairly basic graphically speaking (200% better than a SNES).

It's apparently gonna be aimed at high schools IT departments. So what do you think?

Meh. If I were to make my own console...I'd make it so it could do better (graphically) than the Xbox. Not an SNES clone. :|

For software and hardware hackers :\ I don't see what's so interesting about it, if you want to play with a bunch of wires break old telephones

ouuuu... That looks interesting, too bad I have no experiance with coding or anything, Better stick to the NWN toolset.

I wonder how much it'll sell for.

Why not just build your own computer?

heh, look at that fancy jargon "200% better" you mean 2 times better? Stupid people think they mean 200 times better which is why they do that. That whole thing just sounds stupid a crappy to me

(no offence to anyone on this forum or their mommas or their mommas' cats)
