Ouya

Been waiting around on Apple to turn the Apple TV into a video came console? You can get a preview of that experience with the Ouya ($100). Sporting a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Android 4.0, 1GB of RAM 8GB of flash storage, HDMI, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a wireless hardware controller, it's got the chops to output fine-looking games, and thanks to an open SDK combined with the guarantee of digitally-delivered, free-to-try titles, it could up-end the console business as we know it. Or its Yves Behar-designed interface might get bludgeoned by Apple. But hey, it's only $100, so it's worth a shot. Right?

  • Scrabble Typography Edition

    If you're a fan of typography, then it's only reasonable to think that you'll be a fan of Scrabble Typography Edition ($200). The highlight of this luxurious set is the solid walnut tiles featuring a wide variety of different, interesting fonts. They're joined in the set by a solid walnut storage case with drawer, a six-panel solid walnut magnetized gameboard with non-slip cork backing, and metal tile racks. Oh, and each set will include a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by the creator — and Uncrate pal — Drew Capener himself.

  • Retrode

    Have your heart set on some authentic retro gaming? Well, you could probably buy a real SNES or Genesis for far less cash, but if you'd rather play your old carts on your computer, you'd best pick up a Retrode ($85). This compact gadget houses cartridge slots and two controller ports for both 16-bit consoles, and connects to your computer via USB, offering driverless operation using any emulator — no composite RCA input required.
