The Ouya [ooh-yuh] is an upcoming video game console running its own version of the Android operating system. Julie Uhrman, a game industry veteran, founded the project in 2012.

She brought in designer Yves Béhar to collaborate on the design of the project, and Muffi Ghadiali as product manager to put together the engineering team. Development was funded via Kickstarter, raising $8 million and becoming the website’s second-highest-earning project in its history. The console is slated for release in March 2013. The Ouya will feature an exclusive Ouya store for applications and games designed specifically for the Ouya platform.
