microByte Retro Handheld Crowdfunding Goes Live on Crowd Supply

Micro systems seem to be getting more and more popular these days. While I'm not totally sold on a 1.3" screen, I'm hearing the screen is extremely sharp which could make up for that. I normally don't take too many risks over $50 in the SBC Gaming realm but this one comes in at $45 so might be worth the risk. A premium model pledge is $60.  What does grab my attention is the 6-7 hours of GAMEPLAY you can get out of the battery and the open source spirit of the project.  It looks like this tiny handheld console will easily handle NES, Gameboy, GameBoy Color, Game Gear & Sega Master System. Atari Scummvm emulators  are currently being developed for this open source console.  Check out the link below for more info:  https://www.crowdsupply.com/byte-mix-labs/microbyte
