A London-based technology and design company named Creoqode unveiled a brand new product on Kickstarter this month.

Called 2048, it is a DIY open-source game console that has been designed to allow users to create their own video games and visuals and learn skills in coding at the same time.

The name of the console was chosen due to the console’s display, which is made up of 2048 individual LED bulbs that have been placed in a matrix form. This offers a 64 x 32 resolution, with access to a range of colours and great brightness, making it awesome for playing and creating retro-style video games on according to the creators.

The consoles also features an Atmega 2560 R4 chip for a processor, with specially designed pins to allow for plug-and-play features.

Check it out via the video below.
