Story

The project is a homemade game console that is powered by an Arduino mega. The games written for the game console make use of the two libraries that I wrote: an LED matrix library and a Game library. The controller used to provide input to the game console is also homemade.  

I made the project because I wanted to lol XD... Also, I needed a new youtube video :) 



It works by uploading a game/sketch that uses the two libraries mentioned above into the Arduino and then voila, the Arduino is running a game.
