Pocket Chip

I preordered a PocketCHIP and so should you! Seriously buy it now. Think GameBoy Color & Rasperry Pi put together and pre-built for $50 + s&h. The PocketCHIP runs linux, has a touchscreen and keyboard and runs PICO-8 which is a super cool retro fantasy console which you should just buy now and play with today. I also bought PICO-8 so I could play with it today (really last week) and start building a game. All the games are written in Lua (a language I don’t know but looks similar to Python and seems to just make sense) and it has sprite builders and music editors built into it. It’s a really cool thing and I’ll be playing with it when I get it in June.
