Fascinating project for the games industry. Already well surpassed their goal on kick starter. At least watch their video

Looks like this might tear down the barriers facing so many independent developers.

Sounds interesting, looks like it'll have a fair amount of competition though. The adaptability is key, god knows how they are going to make it compatible with all HDMI TVs, there must be tricky variations to overcome.

Love the concept, but I'm wary of Android consoles in general. Too many of them doing the rounds right now for comfort, given that nobody's actually managed to ship one, let alone make a profit from it...

From my experience with android I'd say it's a solid system, but in order for it to work as a stand alone console, of sorts, it will need something which you can do with it which you can't do, or can't do as well/easily/conveniently anywhere else.
