My name is Kevin Mellott and RetroOnyx is my new site dedicated to retro gaming. I've been building retro gaming hardware for the last ~8 years. I've been a electrical engineer for 13+ years and I was an electronic technician for 7 years prior to that. A tinkerer my entire life. My goal here is to provide innovative niche gaming products for the retro gaming community. I enjoy surprising people with unexpected features in my projects and I'm known to keep tweaking a product until it's just right.
RetroOnyx has a strong history with Nintendo Virtual Boy projects, starting years ago on the PlanetVB.com forums. I will continue with my Virtual Boy projects here, as well as bring my design ideas to other retro gaming platforms. I currently build products for Virtual Boy, Wonderswan, Dreamcast, and a few others.
The name RetroOnyx comes from a combination of retro gaming and my onyx 3D print material, which is the carbon fiber material a lot of my products contain. These are exciting times with so much that can be designed and realized. I look forward to the future and what RetroOnyx can bring to the gaming community.
