  • DESCRIPTION

    It’s all in the name: an arcade so itty-bitty it fits in the palm of your hand. The TinyArcade by TinyCircuits puts the “fun” in “functional,” giving you a miniature that doesn’t just imitate a life-sized machine but performs like one too. Enjoy classic video games on this fully-functioning mini arcade wherever and whenever you want. Whether you are looking to recreate your childhood memories or make new ones, the Tiny Arcade is simple to build and simple to use.

    In addition, watching videos or movies on your Tiny Arcade is simple, just use our TSVconverter-a free tool to convert any MP4 file. Just load the files on to a microSD card and enjoy hours of entertainment!

    If you’re looking to exercise your programming skills, you can learn how to develop your own games to play on the Tiny Arcade and share in the TinyCircuits community under our forum.

    Tiny, yet cute. It is something that will make you think of lego for some time untill you make it whole, then you can start programming. Fun! Also, it is actually a working console! :D
