ESPlay Micro: Open Source ESP32 Game Console

Today we'll take a look at the ESPlay Micro, an open source game console built around the ESP32 WROVER SoC. Aside from being a lightweight game console for retro emulation these boards also make for a great development platform to learn low level systems programming. The hardware and software are both open source and pretty straightforward.

PS: these would make for an awesome Christmas present for anyone into gaming or making.
