We are back! 

This time we wan't to:

1. produce more games for the indieGO! and Amiga Computers

2. add a new lower cost version based on the Orange Pi

3. create an expansion for the indieGO! which allows to use and backup original 3.5" disks from Amiga, ATARI and other systems. 

4. Expand by hiring one part-time employee for covering orders, packaging and some other tasks.

As featured on:

the indieGO! is the non plus ultra ARM powered system and the only one with a DVD-RW or optional BD-RW drive

play and or backup your CD-based retro games (by default only non-copy-protected disc... but since the indieGO! is open, it is up to you what you will backup - please check you local and country specific laws before backing up copy protected media )

the indieGO is not only a gaming or media center, you can also use it as powerful and maybe most power-efficient Computer. Do everything you need using Linux, Android or AEROS. 

It even runs X86 linux software because we gift you Elltechs Exagear Emulator which works similar to "Rosetta" Emulation which was used by Apple during the transition from PPC-CPU's to Intel CPU's...

Long story short.. you can run many PC-inux apps seemingly besides the ARM based apps. 

 

Damm.. Even if you don't like CD's or DVD's it is still a great ARM based box because where else do you have a case with a Multi-card reader included. While the OS sits on the micro-sd card, you can still attach more cards via the cared reader in the front. 

For existing indieGO! gamers we are proud to present the first add-on 

Say hello to the Kryoflux Sidekick

Some of you may know this device already. Kryoflux is the defect standard for preserving old Floppy disk from Amiga, ATARI, C64 and many more classic systems.

Some of our backers are Amigans as well and have asked for a solution to connect a disk drive.. Here we go:

The Kryoflux Sidekick acts as stand for the indieGO!. Just put it into the stand and connect it via USB (on the back). 

The Kryflux itself is powered over USB. An external DC plug is used to power the disk drive.

Give it your style with plenty of decals to choose from

 

ALTERNATE OPERATING SYSTEMS

You can run not only our own Distribution called indiGO! OS ™ which included a multiple front-ends like EmulationStation, Attract mode, Kodi or out own EmuLA ™ .. you can also run Android ™ , other Linuxes depending on the Board you choose.

Lowering the costs with oranges... tasty oranges

Performance wise the Orange Pi models are between a Pi2 and a Pi3.. some may know that we initially planned to offer Pi2 based consoles but we have upgraded the Pi2 to the Pi3 for free as soon it was available. 

Now the good thing about the Orange Pi is the price.. the bad thing is that it has only 2 USB ports so we need to add a HUB to this models which compensates a bit of the price benefit. 

Kryoflux modul and stand

With the optional Kyroflux stand you can hold a Kryofux board, power a 3.5" disk drive and place your indieGO in vertical position. 

The whole setup is free of screws. The drive module can be sliced to the stand.

Status

Now we are registered manufacturer in germany this means no more unexpected waiting times. We will also offer the Orange Pi lite in and from germany within 2016. I've got already a tracking number for them.

We will start in december the production of the Orange Pi based models and we will need to work 2 month on the Software side of things and do some documentation and tests / certificates. 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risiken und Herausforderungen

indieGO!(™) ©2012-2016 Pascal Papara. See website for details.
Or visit www.facebook.com/indiegoretro

There are no particular risks, or at least we don't foresee any particular risks when it comes to fulfilling our backers rewards. We've built our prototype, our custom OS, we have carefully researched sources for materials and components.

The only small thing we can think of is not being able to get enough ARM SoC boards, thus shipping of consoles could be delayed slightly. All other parts are readily available and are not a problem to get high quantities at any time. The I/O shield and SoC-mounting frames are done by us directly in the workshop.
