OK So the chances are you are not at school, but can we say work bag, briefcase or even man bag?

Described as “an Electronic Tabletop Mini-Arcade featuring microswitch controls, arcade video & audio, and a portable formfactor,” the Starforce PI is being kickstartered by creator Marcel J. de Haan.

The small gaming console is based on early 1980s pre-Nintendo portable videogames, and features full-sized microswitch joystick and buttons, blasting stereo speakers, accurate video playback, and a durable, portable form factor.

With a modular design, off-the-shelf components and a Raspberry Pi at its core, the STARFORCE PI will support an impressive library of classic gaming systems and modern 16-bit style retrogames, thereby becoming the Ultimate Dimension in Portable Arcade Gaming.

Having not made its target on Kickstarter¬†we notice that the OFFICIAL WEBSITE is still up and running and looking absolutely awesome. The project is far from dead and watching where to buy it from could prove helpful, as well as the teams FACEBOOK PAGE… The system boasts HDMI out as well as USB Inputs.

We at Arcade Punk, love this little console, the guys who built it and their general vibe seem nice enough, keeping the scene alive is our focus in life and these guys hit the nail on the head, lets hope round 2 of funding works out.
