PocketSprite – The World’s Smallest Console
If you’re fed up of spending all your money on AA batteries and need something smaller to game on during the morning commute, take a look at the PocketSprite – the world’s smallest ‘playable emulation device.’
Ultraportable and ultraplayable, PocketSprite is a console which provides instant access to gaming classics. Featuring full-colour, high-contrast OLED screen, sound, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, storage, and an internal rechargeable battery, the PocketSprite is more than just a gimmick.
PocketSprite comes pre-loaded with two emulators, GNUBoy and SMS Plus, which allow you to play every single game on the following platforms: Nintendo Game Boy, Nintendo Game Boy Color, Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear.
When you’re tired of the pre-loaded open source games, adding new games and apps is a one-click process. Not only that, no cables are needed – just connect to PocketSprite’s Wi-Fi network, upload the ROM through PocketSprite’s web interface, and you’ll be playing.
While it is tiny, the makers PocketSprite are keen to emphasise that it’s also incredibly playable. And in fairness is does come with 16 MB of internal storage, 14 MB of which can be filled with game ROMs. Like a load of crowd-funded tech these days, the PocketSprite is also am open source development platform, which means whizzkids can programme their very own games for it.
The PocketSprite is currently being crowd-funded over at CrowdSupply, where it’s already smashed its target with well over a month of funding left. You can grab one now for around £40 ($55), with shipping worldwide on 15th May 2018.
