I may not know everything there is to know about old TV’s and video game hardware preservation. However, I do know that Bob from Retro RGB has done a great job on that front, and he has been doing so for over five years time now (may the Gaming gods bless his Gamer soul for doing so). That is also why I’m really glad to inform you all that Bob has launched an indiegogo campaign for his new video game hardware preservation and Wiki homepage (it’s a not-for-profit website):

“Hey guys, I’m Bob from RetroRGB.com and this Indiegogo campaign is to help support video game, computer and CRT/flat-screen preservation. After spending over five years dedicating all my spare time to creating how-to guides on and videos on how to get the best quality from your game console, I realized this challenge was bigger then one person could ever handle themselves. As a result, I decided to start this campaign to open a not-for-profit website, that will act as a wiki that the entire gaming community can benefit from. Unfortunately, starting a not-for-profit company and while I’ve been trying to find ways to do it all myself, I realized I can’t do it without your help.”

“This campaign is to raise money to help preserve video game and computer hardware. The minimum target goal would be to start a not-for-profit wiki to provide how-to guides and preserve general and technical information about video game consoles, computers, CRT’s and even newer flat-screen displays. The more funding we get, the more we can do though, ranging from hardware preservation to opening a physical location!”   – Retro RGB

I really like the idea of having a Retro RGB Wiki-like site that’s open for the public (sharing is caring).

In other words, the game plan would be to raise 25,000 USD within two months from now on indiegogo. Well, Bob is of to a good start, since his already been able to raise almost 3,000 USD. So I wish him the very best of luck with everything =) (you will find Bob’s campaign overview video down below).
