It comes in two parts; there’s the actual console, which is a small box that takes care of all the actual work, then there’s a giant “adapter” which is where you plug all the cartridges in (the console slides in under the adapter). The console has various settings that let you change video (and conversion/upscale) options, as well as built-in cheat support. It also supports USB controllers, so you can plug just about anything in there.

Most interesting, though, is the fact it’ll let you install games from a cartridge onto the console (which looks like it’ll let you use a microSD card).

Everything I’ve seen like this, like the Retron5, has problems. Consider also how expensive this is. If you absolutely want it for free, use an emulator. If you have a burning desire to pay to play Super Mario World again, it’s like 5ish bucks on the Wii U. Don’t waste your money on products like this.
