If this project has to be remembered, it should be as successful example of open hardware development. Indeed, it is not just the hardware which is open but the whole development process, with discussions and files being exchanged by more than a hundred users on our Discord chat.
As an example of this openness the first working Gamegirl was in the hands of a contributor, [poulsen93] who took the picture above. And as the development advances we hope to provide more and more devices to contributors. You can contribute in a lot of ways, regardless of your experience.
