Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Or come and get involved on our social media channels ...

Wii U released

18th November 2012
Wii U released

The Wii U was the first Nintendo console to support high-definition graphics. The Wii U's primary controller was the Wii U GamePad, which featured an embedded touchscreen. Each software title could be designed to utilize this touchscreen as being supplemental to the main TV, or as the only screen for Off-TV Play. 

The Wii U utilized a custom multi-chip module (MCM) developed by AMD, IBM and Renesas in cooperation with Nintendo. Its MCM combined a central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU), as well as an EEPROM memory controller.The CPU, designed by IBM, consisted of a PowerPC 750-based tri-core processor "Espresso" clocked at 1.24 GHz. It was, at the time, described by IBM as an "all-new, Power-based microprocessor".
