Esplora Is an Arduino-Based Gaming Development Platform

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 27th, 2012

Hobby boards like the Arduino beg to be built up into gaming systems; the Esplora branch of the Arduino project makes it even easier by including hardwired buttons, a joy stick, and other game-focused features right on the development board.

Those on-board addition are what make the Esplora different from any current Arduino release: it comes with both inputs and outputs already connected to the board–no wiring or soldering required–just jump right in and start working on the game you want to create without worrying about wiring up the hardware side of things.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
