Wow. That has to be the clunkiest looking thing ever. I know it was 1990, but still.
Cool, guess I was wrong! Any websites in this? I was deprived as a child, only having a Fisher-Price *audio* tape recorder - I still have the bitchin' tape that came with it though ^_^
when we will see a portable gamegear prototype?
I think this is just on more concept SEGA's engineers were trying before the GG...
But it's amazing!
I heard the Fisher Price camera is pretty rare and some video artists use it.
Anyhow, does anybody remember the 32-bit Sega handheld prototype assembler posted about years ago on the EZboard?
nah, more informations please.rayer:
Well unless someone can read kanji we're shit outof luck.
Wow, never heard of it before.
Anti, I have to thank you so much for that link. I spent a good 3 hours reading that site in work today :smt082 Sure made my afternoon of no jobs speed by
No problem mate. It's a very interesting site indeed
Yeah, that was a cool site that sure took me back to my family's first VCR days.... and I was the only one in the family (at age 8) who knew how to turn the tuning knobs under the cover to change the preset channels to the more interesting cable channels above channel 13... those were the days...
And also, I spotted my brother's first laserdisc player, that clunky old Pioneer one, on that site. He bought it used in 1992 or 3 or so, so even back when he bought it it was over 10 years old!
Anyway, back on topic... those pics look interesting but to me it's just wild speculation. Did artists at Beep! draw them themselves, or did they get them from Sega? They are just pencil drawings after all, nothing to go wild about. Beep! and those other magazines came up with absurd designs of future hardware almost monthly. :/
so where can i find this portable famicom from bandi
You can't. It was never released also its not really portable like a handheld. It was the size of a small carry case.
dang well i build my own any way
well i built my own anyway i was just looking for a pocket size one..................... yes i have idea i will build one from my pocket nes or game axe color
ever heard of the story where a guy bought the thinnest notebook at the airport from a pilot after spotting him using it on his lap while sitting at the terminal. when he handed over rather large sum of cash the pilot gave him the small notebook plus a big suitcase standing next to the seat. When he called out the pilot pointing out that he forgot to collect his luggage the pilot replied, "no mate that IS the battery..."
Nice concept.....for a R/C car controller:lol:
Did they at least made a mockup?
Not one that has ever been found. I would imagine they didn't wast their time with it past the drawing board. The R&D costs alone would be astounding, not to mention manufacturing.
I see, well I don't fell sad for this little contraption, not that I can say the same about other great SEGA stuff like the DC DVD adaptor, the MP3 VMU and the VR headset for the Genesis

Here is the whole article, from the May 1990 issue of Beep! Mega Drive.
