Analog NT is like a modern day NES.
The Analog NT is a new system that it’s makers say is ‘designed around the heart and brain of the original NES’, allowing it to play NES and Famicom game cartridges without resorting to emulation.
It’s also made of a solid block of aircraft grade aluminium and looks niiice. Analog Interactive say the fine details of the system and pre-orders will all be available at the end of March. From the website it seems like in addition to having to use your own games, you’ll also have to use your own controllers, which could make the setup look slightly less cool.

'Game Frame' hits Kickstarter.
Game Frame is a 256 pixel grid of LED lights, which can display images or animations from an SD card. Buttons on top control playback options, and the frame runs off a standard arduino board. It also features an integrated breakout game.
While the demo video on the Kickstarter page looks awesome, I can’t help but think that the $230 pledge required to get one is a bit steep. That being said, the project has already almost tripled its US$15,000 goal and still has 27 days to go, so if you’d like to get your hands on one, get in quick - they ship out in order of payment, starting this June.
