The latest Linux-based portable gaming console from Gamepark Holdings (the same guys who created the GP2X Wiz) has the unfortunate name “Caanoo”, which is not only difficult to spell, I have no idea how to pronounce it.
I wasn’t sure if a Nintendo 3DS would really be in the cards for me as a future gadget purchase, but I’m now one step closer to that purchase thanks to the revelation that the Ninja Gaiden series would be making a home on the unique 3D handheld.
A Japanese media retailer called Geo reportedly revealed that a Sony PSP-4000 would be coming out this year. I say “reportedly” because the leak is in Japanese; the PSP-4000 is mentioned at the bottom of the chart you see below.
The latest in handheld emulators, the Letcool N350JP tries to one-up other portables by adding on something they don’t offer – a pair of external controllers for two-player fun.
The compact system comes with emulators for the Super Nintendo, NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, but if it’s anything like the other portable emulators out there, you can bet there will be more emulators, and probably a Linux build for it at some point.
Big N today took wraps off of their much-anticipated Nintendo 3DS handheld video game system at the E3 2010 show.
The new handheld looks sort of like a DSi, but features a widescreen 3.5″ 3D display at the top which requires no glasses to see the its 3D effect.
With Nintendo’s likely E3 reveal of the 3DS coming this week, it was only natural that supposed spy shots of the new handheld would start to surface around the web. So here goes… Apparently, a Chinese blogger first came up with this rough sketch of what the 3DS might look like:
It seems as if there’s a new Android-based tablet just about every day, so it’s getting hard to tell the difference between them all. Hard Kernel’s new Android 2.1 ODROID-T hopes to differentiate itself with superb HD video and gaming capabilities.
This cool portable luggable Nintendo Wii mod can now be yours – assuming you win the auction.
The DIY Wii portable features a built-in 7-inch 16:9 LCD screen, and an integrated GameCube style controller. The modder who built it also installed the Wii sensor bar into the case of the system.
Sony first showed off its Vaio P line of computers at CES a few years back and they were downright offended if you called the machines netbooks. This was despite their small form factor, netbook hardware, and netbook performance mind you.
I’ve certainly seen my fair share of Nintendo portable casemods over the years, but I have to say that this Gamecube handheld is one of my new faves.
I suppose it’s because this is modder techknott’s second Gamecube portable that it’s so well put together.
The handheld media player market is so crowded at this point, you really need to do something special to stand out. This PMP from China strives to differentiate itself with a large high-resolution screen and a form-factor reminiscent of a small tablet PC or e-reader.
I really like Olivier Demangel‘s take on the Nintendo DS. It’s true that the DSi XL has got larger screens, but Olivier’s design makes them even bigger. He calls it the Nintendo 3DS, which happens to be the name Nintendo has been using for their upcoming 3D console.
So with the Nintendo DSi XL having just hit U.S. stores this week, word is floating around the web that Nintendo is already working on a brand-new handheld that will support true 3D graphics.
While there are no images of the 3DS yet, what I have here is a video – no, not of the Nintendo 3DS.
With all the buzz about 3D televisions coming out this year, the biggest problem with these displays is that they require special glasses to create the 3D illusion in your eyeballs. While this new device prototype doesn’t produce truly stereoscopic images, the effect it produces is the next best thing.
While there are tons of DIY and homebrew analog synthesizers floating around the universe these days, this is the first time in a long while that I’ve seen an analog synth from a major electronic instrument manufacturer in quite some time.
