What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

Hello I am Michel Janicki.
I've been developing video games on computers, game consoles and mobile phones since more than 28 years.

Recently I have designed my own game console and I need your support to share it with you.

What is Console 101?
Console 101 is a programmable video game console.
It features:
Arduino Due as its heart
120x120 pixels in 256 RGB colors VGA display output
One 8-axis joystick 4 buttons
1 MicroSD card slot
1 sound output
1 reset button

A 100% functional prototype of Console 101 has already been built.


Video game console on which anyone can develop games.


The games must be produced via a small C scripting language, tested in an emulator and then transferred to the device using a Micro SD card. No sdk required.

What is the money for?
The contributed money will be used to buy electronic components and everything needed to build the console:
wood, joysticks, buttons, wires, connectors...
The production will start after the Kickstarter success.

Risks and challenges

Building Console 101 is easy.
It only requires easy to find electronic components.
