GamerCube: a tiny metal tribute to the best console ever.

$1,148

78

In 2001, the world was graced with the mightiest game console to ever include a handle. There were six sides, but the fun was endless. It let us explore haunted mansions, clean up beaches, smash our friends, and sail across oceans on a talking dragon ship. The little machine with a love handle may be gone now, but it won't be forgotten! 

The GamerCube is a tiny cube made of aluminum as a tribute to a time when gaming was about having three of your best friends sitting around a TV screen collecting coins and racing around tracks in pairs. At 16mm, it's about the size of dice. Available in 4 colors.

Each cube is made from solid aluminum, anodized in one of 4 colors, then laser engraved with the details. All images are of the prototype version. The final product will have cleaner lines. Each cube is individually lasered on all six sides. Very minor deviations will occur.

The GamerCube makes an excellent desktop trinket- it's cool to the touch and the engravings have a slight texture to it. You'll want to play with it all the time!

Pledge for a GamerCube today and receive it in the mail just a month after the Kickstarter close date! Awesome! You gotta love locally made goods. If we meet our goal, we'll be able to manufacture the cube and extra sales proceeds will go to a good cause (see below). 

Here are some ace pictures:

Here's The Deal

Kickstarter cannot be used to raise money for charity. This campaign is to raise the funds for a minimum print run of the GamerCube. Once the cubes have been made, I plan to sell any extras with 100% of the proceeds going to Child's Play Charity. For more information, please visit: http://childsplaycharity.org/

**This campaign is not associated with the BIG N in anyway. This is not a game or a console. This is just a tribute to the greatest console of all time.

Risks and challenges

This is my 5th Kickstarter project. The cubes will be made in the US and delivered by mail in a bubble envelope. Because each cube is hand made, we can have it delivered just weeks after the campaign ends.
