Ouya Adds Butterfies in the Sky With Reading Rainbow Limited Edition Console, Signed by LeVar Burton

on June 30, 2014 7:25 AM

Iconic Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton surprised many late last month with the reveal of a new Kickstarter campaign set to fund a revival of the classic children’s TV series, and with the show having been well-past its initial funding and working on numerous stretch goals, with supporters like Ouya coming in to support the effort.

With the Kickstarter for the series currently at over $4,515,469 with just over two days left to go, some of Kickstarter’s most successfully-funded projects (such as Pebble Smartwatch, the Veronica Mars film, and more) are coming to the aid of the campaign’s last push, and Ouya is joining in. The micro console developer and publisher revealed a special “butterfly-in-the-sky” limited edition blue Ouya console as a stretch goal reward for backers of the campaign.

Ouya details that 500 of the limited edition console will be made, with all of the consoles signed by Reading Rainbow host LeVar Burton himself, and will be available as a $250 tier reward for new backers of the project. The campaign will also offer an (unsigned) Ouya console for those that add an additional $175 to their current pledge, and if $150 is added to your pledge, an Ouya console will be donated to a supported school.
