GameStick aims to make gaming more accessible and affordable for those who wish to play on the big screen. Currently, TV game consoles are expensive, bulky, and the games are not as cheap when compared to mobile games. GameStick aims to bring mobile gaming onto a bigger TV display screen with no cables and fuss.

The compact, portable device is the size of a USB Stick and is integrated with a minimalistic game controller. The GameStick is powered by the Android system where users can purchase hundreds of games that were originally designed for a mobile device. By simply plugging the device into the TV’s HDMI port, users can begin playing on the big screen.

GameStick is looking for funding on Kickstarter and hopes to raise $100,000 by the end of January. The early-bird GameStick costed $69, whereas the retail price for a GameStick Bundle will be $115. If you plan to pledge $5,000, you not only get the GameStick limited edition bundle, but also the opportunity to have dinner with Jasper Smith, the creator of the device. See the demo video below:
