He connects dots that I didn't even know were there. Andre is a pioneer in the microcontroller and DIY electronics space, and has identified ... , created, and brought to market products that bring previously-esoteric concepts into the here and now. A microcontroller board for makers powerful enough to port arcade games to? Awesome.

He's already been a great entrepreneur for years. While everyone else was trying to make the next big thing in videogames, Andre was making ... a killing selling Majong at Wal-Mart checkout stands. It's not glorious like other game development, but it was ridiculously lucrative.
