Teaching technology through fun & games
Pokitto DIY 32-bit Color Console
Pokitto is great value for money. It comes as a complete package with plastic case, cables, battery and battery charger. You have an option to get your Pokitto as a fully assembled console, or as a very easy DIY kit - NO SOLDERING REQUIRED!
INJECTION MOLDED PLASTIC CASE & COLORS
Pokitto comes with a commercial-quality ABS plastic-injection molded case, that is half white and half color.
EXAMPLE GAMES AND APPLICATIONS
Pokitto will launch with Pokitto-exclusive games to demonstrate advanced graphics & sound programming of the Pokitto:
EASY TO PROGRAM
Pokitto has fully working programming tools immediately at earlybird launch. Instructions and tutorials will be made available as downloadable content from Pokitto.com.
EASY TO EXTEND AND BUILD NEW IDEAS
Pokitto has a big extension connector, that allows you to connect and build electronic projects using the Pokitto as the "brain" of your project.
SUPPORT FOR BLACK&WHITE CONSOLE GAMES
Pokitto comes with extensive libraries, and more libraries are being ported. This means that open-source games that were intended for the black-and-white Arduino-based consoles can be made to run on the Pokitto. Even color can be added with a few lines of code.

Pokitto is developed by two experienced product developers: Jonne from Finland and Daniel from USA. We believe in keeping things simple and controlling quality by knowing exactly how and where our products are made. That is why Pokitto's shipped to customers in Americas are made in USA and customers in EU & Asia & Africa will get theirs from Finland.

Risks and challenges
This project is run by experienced product developers. We have the tools and the knowhow to make this.
If the project is very succesful, there is a risk of delays in delivery due to organizing much higher than anticipated volume production.
EVERY BACKER WILL GET THEIR POKITTO / REWARD
