We have a passion for gaming and know that you do too! Our love for retro gaming drove us at Gamebox to come up with a device that we think is truly unique. We wanted something sleek, small, and customizable. Most importantly - we wanted a console easy to use for retro gaming needs on the go. Cartboy is our answer.
Heavily refined and fully tested, Cartboy delivers a full retro gaming experience at home and on the go because of its features. Complete with a USB OTG (on the go) port allowing for connection of peripherals. Connect things such as gamepads, USB drives for adding games, and keyboards for modifying the open Linux based operating system. All of this was paired with an HDMI out port to give you a game console that rivals the Nintendo switch in terms of gaming capability.
On the go, at home connected to TV, or with your friends; Cartboy is your go-to boy!
