What is an OUYA?

I found a reference to a gaming console called OUYA the other day and wanted to know more about it. My first thought was, do we really need another console?

After a little more research I found this video game console to be interesting. The OUYA is an Android powered video game console. Its a Kickstater crowd-funded product. It will retail for $99 usd and be available on June 4, 2013.
