Tiny Circuits Thumby beta unboxing (A great christmas gift to hang on the Christmas tree :)

Firstly a huge thanks to Ken Burns from Tiny circuits for sending out this beta sample :). Thumby™ is an itty-bitty game system at the tips of your thumbs, a best friend for your keys, and an easy learning tool all-in-one. Start playing right away with preloaded games, download more games from the website and learn to program your own games.

Thumby comes fully assembled and ready to play!

Modern games have come so far in terms of graphics and, well, everything else too. With advances in hardware, we are now able to make the same gaming hardware from the late 80s into something thumb-sized and adorably tiny. It was possible to make, so we did it, and now you can play it for yourself!
