An interesting project 400% funded on Kickstarter: Everyone keen on retro gaming should check it out!

Get the news about the continuing KADE miniConsole+ project and information on pre-ordering and general sales at kadevice.com

The KADE miniConsole+ is a versatile gaming device that connects retro gamepads and controllers to a huge variety of computers and consoles using plug and play detection.

The miniConsole+ is easy to use and works out of the box, no programming is necessary. Simply plug a controller into one end of miniConsole+ and a system into the other end and voila! you’re ready to play. You can play all your favourite games as they were designed to be played with your favourite original controllers.

The device has been in development for 2 years already and has gone through a great number or revisions, redesigns and prototypes. We’re really excited to announce the KADE miniConsole+ and its ground-breaking capabilities. We hope that you will support us on our journey by backing our Kickstarter project so we can make this happen.

We think our prototype device looks pretty neat in a shiny black aluminium case. We’re exploring other presentation options and labeling too. The exciting stuff happens inside the case!
