Thread: Playdate- New Ultra-Indie Handheld

  1. Playdate- New Ultra-Indie Handheld

    $150, black and white screen, plus pad, two buttons, and a hand-crank on the side. The $150 gets you the Playdate system plus the first dozen games, released one a week, each one a surprise. The first game is from Keita Takahashi. Needless to say, I'm in. I kind of love how weird and specialized it is.

  2. Teenage Engineering is involved in a gimmick first product? Shocking!

    I'm betting we're two of 4 people on this board who know who Teenage Engineering are. That they are makes me a little more interested!
    To boldly go where lots of men have gone before...

  4. I had never heard of Teenage Engineering before today. According to Wikipedia they do audio devices, speakers and synthesizers. I take it they're more popular than I'd expect?

    Are they the pocket calculator synthesizer people?

  6. I guess the B&W thing is an artistic expression, but I would have preferred a color screen.

    Normally I'm all about the little gimmicky handhelds, but $150? Hard pass.

  8. This looks like it could be a cool device for someone else to buy.

    Yup, that's them. I have musician friends that swear by their stuff. I've never had any use for it ( gimmicky and I have better synths), but the Pocket Operators are pretty good for the money.

    This thing isn't backlit either

  10. Is it e-ink or something?
