When was the last time you played a video game on your television set? According to the folks behind GameStick, there are 1,416,338,245 TVs in the world but less than 1% of them are being used to play video games. That seems like a huge waste of television usage potential, if you ask me. So what they did was come up with an ultra-portable video game console called GameStick to encourage people to play video games the way they were made to be played: on a huge screen.
GameStick is basically an entire console in a tiny stick. It’s so tiny that it can actually fit inside a compartment of the controller that it comes with. You can hit the break for a video introducing the gaming wonder that is GameStick.
The device is open so developers can innovate and develop games quickly for the platform. It runs on the Android operating system, so there’s already quite a library of games available that’s compatible with the system.
GameStick is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $79 will get you one of your very own.
