THE 64

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-64-computer-and-handheld..

I don't suppose anyone know who the "world class software and hardware engineer" is, or the "technical team from around the world"? The page fails to mention any names besides Darren Melbourne.

I think they should add "burst processing" and maybe a "boobamatic processor" as well.

As long as it comes with some blue and red racings stripes on the case, some fools are going to buy it, anyway

Was thinking the same: "WTF? Come to the point, man!"
I gave up reading after a while. 3:-)

"we have already secured options on an excess of 250 classic (as well as some brand new mega cool) games to ship installed on THE64"

The hyperbole is strong with this one.
Nobody in this world will have new C64 games before we do.

So they are aiming at the cracking scene as customers, it seems. :-)

Well, even before finishing the first two devices, they've declared a 3rd one is on the way... THE64 Mini!
I'm not exactly sure where they see it sitting between the handheld and the "desktop", but I guess that point is moot, considering the other two versions were supposed to be released December 2016
