Ever wanted to build your own game console?
This little device is an open-source retro
DIY (do it yourself) game console.

Make your own game console

Learn STEM while programming

Hack it!

Join a vast maker community



Make your own Game Boy!

With MAKERbuino you can build your own game console from scratch! It’s assembled with ease. All of the components are easy to solder. All you need is some basic soldering skills and you’re good to go!

The device is based on easy-to-find components and programmed in Arduino – one of the most popular DIY microcontroller platforms.

More than a game console

Building the MAKERbuino is only the beginning.
Program a cool retro game, add an extra analog stick, connect a GSM module, use your MAKERbuino to control a quadcopter, add a Wi-Fi module and connect it to the internet.
The MAKERbuino hardware and software is designed to encourage you to make new content and extensions for it. We can’t wait to see what you’ll make!


Design a custom 3D printed or CNC cut casing, change the button caps, turn your MAKERbuino in a cellphone… Make your MAKERbuino unique.

Throughout the process of hacking and customization, you’ll enter the world of electronics, CAD designing, 3D printing, programming, all in a fun and challenging way.

Nevertheless, MAKERbuino is not only for the beginners. It’s capabilities will keep more advanced users busy as well.


That means that you can play with a vast library of gamesmade by the community and available online with source code: creations gallery

Who is this kit for?

Based on our experience, an 11-year-old kid should be able to assemble a MAKERbuino kit with a tiny bit of help from an adult.

Estimated build time: 5 hours.

Building the MAKERbuino kit is just the beginning.
After that, you’ll spend numerous hours creating your own games and experimenting with hardware.


Kids want to have fun! MAKERbuino lets them learn different STEM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) in a fun and explorative way.
Thousands of kids have assembled the MAKERbuino and learned about electronics, soldering, software, hardware and so much more.

What you’ll learn with MAKERbuino

  • how to solder properly
  • what are the basic electronic components and what are their functions
  • what are microcontrollers and some basics of digital electronics
  • how to program a microcontroller in C/C++
  • how a basic game console works and what are the basics of game development
  • how to extend beyond MAKERbuino’s capabilities by adding various expansion modules

MAKERbuino has a build guide

We’ve designed the build guide with the purpose of teaching you something new, not only showing you how to assemble things.

We’ve collected as much feedback as possible from over 1500 users and completely redesigned the build guide which we’ve now split into 6 chapters with more than 120 high-quality photos.

MAKERbuino needs tools

You’ll need some basic tools and equipment for assembling your MAKERbuino:

  • regular soldering iron (nothing super expensive is required) and some solder
  • diagonal cutter pliers
  • regular screwdriver
  • some solder
  • a piece of insulating tape or some super-glue

Or you can buy a kit with a tool pack already included.

MAKERbuino plays games!

MAKERbuino comes with an SD cardthat is preloaded with numerous fun retro games.

More games can be downloaded from an online
MAKERbuino games gallery.
All games are open-sourceand available with a downloadable Arduino sourcecode along with a compiled .HEX file.

You can make your own games using our Arduino library

  • develop in-game menus and other GUI-related content
  • play and develop sound FX and background music
  • draw, display, and animate bitmaps
  • emulate MAKERbuino games on your PC

MAKERbuino does multiplayer

You heard it, MAKERbuino game consoles can connect with link cables, exchange data, and play multiplayer games.

MAKERbuino is hackable

MAKERbuino is based on Arduino UNO. Therefore, it’s compatible with lots of hardware expansion modules.

MAKERbuino was meant to be hacked.

MAKERbuino is fully customizable.

Make your game console unique.
Change the button caps, craft or 3D print a custom casing, add new modules etc.

MAKERbuino ♥ Arduino

YES, we love Arduino.

MAKERbuino is based on ATmgea328p-pu – the same chip used on Arduino UNO board.

Therefore, it’sprogrammed in Arduino IDE(based on C/C++) – the most popular programming environment for makers.

MAKERbuino ♥ Open-source

MAKERbuino’s software is fully open-source and available for you to download.

MAKERbuino’s hardware’s schematics along with the bill of materials are also open-source and available online.
