Help Create an Archive of Video Game History

Below is a description from the Kickstarter site:
Creating an Archive of Video Game History
Today most people's hunt for information begins and ends with a Google search.  I want to create a video game museum that caters to this new information reality by making an online collection that can be freely visited by anyone, at any time, through a simple internet search.
The Vanamo Online Game Museum is an effort to create an archive of video game history with high-quality, high-resolution pictures with detailed descriptions.  The museum's photos will be free for anyone to use in other media, like articles and videos.  They will also be placed on Wikipedia, making them highly visible and readily available, along with vastly improving the quality of their associated articles.
The goal of this Kickstarter is to improve the quality of images and information about video game systems one finds on the internet.  The funds will go toward building a physical archive and collection of hardware that, in turn, becomes an online gallery of high quality pictures - a virtual museum. 
This Kickstarter greatly expands and completes work that I have already begun, which can be seen on my Video Game Wikimedia page.  I'm turning to your for help in expanding the reach and depth of my work, because I believe others can benefit from this work, and share my appreciation for a virtual video game collection of this quality and care.
