About

GAMEBOB Entertainment System:

What is GAMEBOB?

GAMEBOB is a handheld console that plays cartridges from the original nintendo entertainment system from 1985. You can find more features and specs in the pictures below.

The idea for the GAMEBOB came with the desire for a well designed reliable handheld system for the original NES games. Sure emulators are cool, but there is something special about playing with the actual cartridges. Our desire to keep the system true to the roots of old school gaming led us to design something that brings back the feel of the late 80's.

We have been working for the last year to come up with the right design and specs to make this project feasible. The manufacturer we have been working with has been making retro based game systems for over 7 years. We are confident with the manufacturer, designers and engineers we are working with. We know with your help that we can produce an amazing product.

Risks and challenges

The technology is proven. Our manufacturing partner has already made many systems that use this technology.

The engineering and moulding of our design will be the longest and most difficult part of the manufacturing process. Although the tooling, engineering and mould making is a complicated process we are confident in the quality that will be manufactured.
