Seconded. This portable looks great, I especially like how the OUYA logo lights up when the controller is paired. Great job, Downing! :thumb:

Nice project indeed and well executed.

So, logical question - how good is the system for emulation, thinking MAME really - what would interest me for a future portable would be a MAME only unit that was capable of running the majority of MAME games, full speed and full framerate, RGB and booted straight into the MAME menu not submenus. Given the massive range of MAME games available, and classics too, would be pretty awesome.

Very nice :congrats:

And not as if it's a comparison or anything, but it looks a heck of a lot nicer than Ben's :p1:

lol "Ben Heck" but i'd agree. awesome to play emulators on the go, hate the fact hatters will hate on this project - things like "why not just use a laptop" :X good one downing!
EDIT: if you like rpg's i'd say try EARTHBOUND" the games weird, really weird, but its fun and challenging considering how silly the enemies in the game are. or MOTHER 3 - kinda the same thing, but a lot tougher and an english version is needed since it was only released in japan...

That turned out very nice! I really like the LEDs mounted under the logo acting as the pairing indicator. Congrats on a job well done! :congrats:
