Are we supposed to see something other than a signup form?

The Pocket Chip is a little mini handheld computer.
No idea what the PocketChip2 will be, spec-wise.

Very cool! However, seems a bit doomed to fail bringing any new device to market until the dust from the chip shortage settles. IMHO

Can't think of the name of the one with the little crank that people shelled out $$ for (I almost did) and now the company can't deliver.

That'll probably be the PlayDate - https://play.date/

Read a lot about that in Edge magazine. It's interesting in itself, and I'm sure it'll be fun for a while, but I can't see any long-term potential there. It's just a gimmick gadget really.

Yeah that was it, games that were shown for it looked like some of the most unimaginative games ever. Now people probably will not get it until the third quarter of 2022. The crank was interesting, but short of a fishing game I can't see it being hugely useful, but would love to see some imaginative games that prove me wrong.

The first PocketChip looked very interesting, can't see what version 2 holds. Portable Pico8. Can't get better than that, IMHO.
