Meet the PocketSprite: Deluxe Edition
PocketSprite is an ultraportable gaming and emulation console. It’s been engineered to be highly playable, easy to use, easy to update, and designed to let you pick up where you left off, and put it down again.
The Deluxe Edition is incredible. Each device is individually machined from aerospace aluminium, hand polished and electronically anodized to a brilliant midnight black. The screen is the same Gorilla Glass used in flagship smartphones. It's built to last, impress and entertain for a long time.

For Gamers: Relive Retro Gaming in Your Pocket
If you spent all your pocket-money on AA batteries, dreamed of falling blocks, or have a soft spot in your heart for rectangular controllers, PocketSprite is for you. Throw on your favorite games in a click and fill in the otherwise wasted moments of your daily transit.
For Hardware Hackers: An Open Source Dev Platform
PocketSprite is a great gaming console in a tiny package, but look under the hood and it’s so much more. It’s an open source, mature development platform that features a full-color, high-contrast OLED screen, sound, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, storage, and an internal rechargeable battery, all wrapped in a beautifully crafted yet rugged ABS case. PocketSprite’s open source toolchain and robust bootloader make development a snap. Say goodbye to re-inventing the wheel. Say adieu to bricking and JTAG angst. Say hello to rapid development on your favorite new hardware device.
How It Works
We’ve spent an embarassing amount of time making this thing perfect instead of doing our day jobs.
We’ve wrestled a highly flexible, tiny microcontroller into submission and we’ve written some fairly great code to give you a superb gaming experience and snappy framerates. Turn it on, pick an emulator and ROM, and you’re off. Flick it off because your boss / teacher / partner is glaring at you, and when you turn it back on, you’re right back where you were.
Want to add more ROMs, other emulators, or your own programs? PocketSprite’s update mechanism is simplicity incarnate: it makes its own Wi-Fi hotspot, and you upload your new apps in literally one click.
