Kickstart this: TinyScreen is a game system so small you might accidentally inhale it

Keep a copy of Flappy Bird on your wrist or in your wallet

Product: TinyScreen | Manufacturer: TinyCircuits
 


Ever thought your phone was a little too big for your pocket? Well, you certainly won't have any complaints like that for the TinyScreen, a portable system small enough to keep in your wallet.

Hidden behind TinyScreen's 0.96", 96x64 pixel OLED screen is a TinyDuino processor board, based on the similarly Kickstarter-backed Arduino Uno.

These little gizmos are made up of multiple parts, assembled together like LEGO bricks. The basic kit includes the TinyScreen, TinyDuino processor, TinyShield (a backing unit to hide all the innards), and Lithium battery.

There are four buttons on the unit much like the ones you'd find on and old-school Casio watch. Pocket gamers wanting to have more precise controls can purchase the Video Game Kit.

Early Bird pricing for the Video Game Kits is long gone, so it'll cost you $75 to nab one now. The kit includes the Joystick TinyShield, which will add two analogue joysticks to the device.

All versions of TinyScreen come with freeware clones of the infamous Flappy Bird and arcade classic Asteroids ready to play on the device, and the nature of its open source software means there'll be plenty more to come.

When we asked project starter Ken Burns about upcoming native games he told us the team were looking into "development on some more games, like Tetris, Space Invaders, and possibly Pac-Man [clones]."

With the screen being so small it'll be near-impossible to accurately emulate or interpret old console and PC games, but we're still eagerly anticipating gimped versions of Duke Nukem 3D and the odd NES classic.

Enclosures can be 3D printed for the device, so there'll be all sorts of ways to use TinyScreen - on your wrist, glasses, perhaps even in a mini GBA casing.

The Kickstarter has already achieved almost four times its target goal of $15,000, and with 18 days left it'll be interesting to see if any stretch goals will be announced.

Will you pick one up? What would you want to use it for? Tell us in the comments below!
