The Analogue Pocket
« on: October 17, 2019, 02:46:48 AM »
Not sure if anyone has seen this but definitely worth looking at...The Analogue Pocket!


A multi-video-game-system portable handheld. A digital audio workstation with a built-in synthesizer and sequencer. A tribute to portable gaming. Out of the box, Pocket is compatible with the 2,780+ Game Boy, Game Boy Color & Game Boy Advance game cartridge library. Pocket works with cartridge adapters for other handheld systems, too. Like Game Gear. Neo Geo Pocket Color. Atari Lynx & more. Completely engineered in two FPGAs.  No emulation.

I did see it, and it's very cool. There's also a TV adapter being made to go along with this.

Too expensive for me though. If I got one I would want all the add-ons. They haven't said how much the TV out box or the other console adapters are but the base unit is $200 alone so I can just imagine what the total would be!

Yes, the price on this is not cheap.  The add-ons will certainly add on that.  Still a fascinating bit of hardware.

I'm not a handheld person but this multi-in-1 affair looks great. If the screen is nice and sharp I could be tempted. The NeoGeo Pocket and Lynx compatibilty would attract me more than anything else.

It will also have an adapter that lets you use it on your TV, which I think is great as a feature to let you play these games on a larger screen.  Having Lynx compatibility is a plus for me.
