A new handheld gaming system from Panic

#5 Product of the MonthMay 2019

It’s yellow. It fits in your pocket. It’s got a beautiful black and white screen. It’s not super cheap, but not super expensive. It includes brand new games from some amazing creators. Plus it has a crank.

    Pros: 

    Looks fun and unique, happy to see someone taking a chance on it

    Cons: 

    Nothing but renders? I doubt it will debut in 2020

    I mean it looks really cool, but with nothing more than a press release and a few 3D renders (AR view is cool) I don't have too much confidence in it yet. Only time will tell though.

What the heck! This is crazy. Panic (who makes Mac apps like Transmit) just made this adorable, portable gaming system.

@mijustin even better, they've teamed up with Teenage Engineering, which make one of the nicest multimedia synthesizers out there. A perfect combo 👌
IT HAS A CRANK???

You San Francisco weirdos have too much time and money.
@dmitry_gorshkov Panic is from Portland.
This device is quite eye-catching, especially with the crank. Are you going to buy one?
Yes!
No thanks
Maybe. I'll wait to see the games.

Whatever Teenage Engineering touches turns into best designed stuff ever. I would like to have everything from them even that I don't need it :D
