Hi there,

We—next-hack and ITACA Innovation—are thrilled to announce that crowdfunding is now live for the uChip Simple VGA Console (uSVC), a portable, DIY, open hardware retro-gaming platform. Come explore our campaign page, soak up the information there, and help us spread the word. Even better, give us your recommendations! We are working to improve uSVC every day, and your feedback is the most precious support you can give us.

Though of course, should you decide to back the campaign and pick yourself up a uSVC…well, we’d very much appreciate that, too. :)

Stay tuned
