I'm not sure if anyone has seen this, but I thought I'd share it.  This is only available for Android devices currently (phones, tablets and Android TV).  It is excellent and their goal is to bring all the cartridge based systems to it.  It is available as a Beta currently but it can certainly be tested/used.  The cool thing is that you can add your own binaries to play.  Below are images of the platforms currently supported and the controllers supported.

That's pretty cool. I'll have to try it out.

Yes.  The cool part is that it can be installed on Android TV's as well, so you can use a full sized controller for it.

I recently installed this on my Chromebook.  Works great with a generic USB controller.  I was just playing some Atari Lynx Blue Lightning - handles it just fine.

Cool.  Yes, because Chromebooks can use Android apps, this works on them as well.

Last night I tried playing a few minutes each with several different games for the 2600, Colecovision, Lynx and Vectrex.  They all seemed to work great.  I haven't tried the Intellivision yet... but I did spend about half an hour just playing Battlezone 2000 and Armor Attack!  :)

Cool.  I just tested it on my Android TV and it worked great!

Now playing Resident Evil 4, this is a very legendary game.
