What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

LATEST NEWS: 

We'll give away one Ketrø Picø among the first 10 backers

COMING SOON: Stretch Goals

The past was a better time...

KetrØ is born with the main aim of developing a system that enables the retrogamers and the nostalgic people to remember past times playing their favourite games from yesterday with the technology of today and the possibilities and design of tomorrow.

With this objective in mind, we present a solution that encompasses handheld arcade consoles, a well-themed social-based community and periodic events with a very good environment.

KetrØ is made from people to people. We want to change retrogaming and we will do it.

...the present is here...

Ingenuity is our weapon and shield, so we've developed a powerful idea. Let's explain KetrØ in detail:

KetrØ Picø: "Terribilis Portabilitem"

Ketrø Picø is our ultra-handheld proposal, mixing up the best of Ketrø with the lowcost price.

Ketrø Picø - Tech Specs
Ketrø Picø - Tech Specs

It's your device if you... want to play anywhere and want a cheap device that gives you back to the past.

KetrØ Rail: "You are the machinist"

Ketrø Rail - also called Ketro Standard or Ketro St. -  is our flagship and our most revolutionary idea: a foldable handheld console with 2 modes: one more portable but less spectacular (about a book-large sized), and other more spectacular but less portable, or complete folded console (half a book-large sized). 

It's your device if you... want to have a smart device that enables you play games anywhere but also can play in a cooler, more arcade-like style. 

KetrØ All-In: "This game never ends."

Ketrø All-In is our premium, big and powerful console. Ketrø All-In isn't handheld at all, we call it "semi-handheld" console. It's more like a bartop arcade but with the retrofuturistic design that characterizes us.

It's your device if you...don't want to play anywhere but you want to play at home with a professional-style, advanced features and spectacular design.

Ketrø Buttonera controllers

Ketrø Buttonera Slim (available at Ketrø Pico)

1 mini Jøystik pad plus 4+3 mini arcade buttons in a cross-piece system.

Ketrø Buttonera (available at Ketrø Rail)

1 Jøystik plus 7 mini arcade buttons in a ergonomic system.

Ketrø Buttonera Dual (available at Ketrø All-In)

2x Ketrø Buttonera

Ketrø Virtual Buttonera (available at all Ketrø devices)

Up to 4 extra players can join the game using their smartphones or tablets via Ketrø Virtual Buttonera 

Compatibility

 

Ketro St. = Ketro Standard = Ketro Rail

Green = 100% Compatible

Yellow "You'll need more space" = You'll need external storage

Yellow "Testing" = More than 50% Compatible

Orange "Testing" = Less than 50% Compatible

Orange "Not yet" = Planned for future releases of ketrOS

Red "Incompatible" = 0% Compatible

ketrOS

ketrOS is our unique operative system developed entirely by us and focused on easy and well-themed user experience, and feeding back the Community. ketrOS allows the user to play his/her favourite games, spend time at the Community, compete in tournaments, read news, and so on.

ketrOS is upgradeable, customizable and awesome!

KetrØ Community

KetrØ Community is the social place for retrogamers to retrogamers. With social network functions, forum functions, events & tournaments, latest news...is a free and astonishing service in the world of retrogaming.

KetrØ Klub

KetrØ Klub is the "premium service" with some advantages such as premium support, premium assistance to events, exclusive forum, exclusive tournaments..

Exclusive Ketrø Merchandising (only available at this campaign)

We've designed a exclusive set of Ketrø apparel and merchandising that serve as rewards.

"Sex" T-Shirt - It's not the final color.
"Sex" T-Shirt - It's not the final color.

 

The EXCLUSIVE "NO. 1" shirt. We only have 13 shirts to give: 6 to the fastest people and 7 to random backers ;-)

...and the future could be better.

How we will spend the money?

We will spend every single penny to improve our project. Our first aim is to develop a retrogamer community with our own events, tournaments, custom edition. As we said before, we want to revolutionize retrogaming world, and we'll do it. 

The money will be used to constitute Ketroware Co., to buy machines including 3D Printers (all the materials are 3D-modeled), circuits, materials and so on. If you want more detailed information about this topic, please ask us. 

What's next?

If that three Ketrø initial models are successful, we've planned to develop a few more, each one with its exclusive features, and to develop our own games too. Also, we've planned to go to fairs and to organise our own events periodically.

One more thing...

Disclaimer

Ketroware Co. & KetrØ doesn't include any game published by third parties. We only develop hardware and propietary software. We don't distribute copyrighted software and you must use your own legally got backups.

About us

Ketroware Co. and KetrØ are original ideas from two Spanish friends. ketroware.com will be available soon :-) 

Risks and challenges

There could be:
-Manufacturing issues, such as changes at the original design of certain model or color. Manufacturing can require a lot of expensive trial-and-error, with costs of materiales and tools. You'll be notified if one prototype don't work or if it's appeared a manufacturing or design problem. In case of that, you'll be asked and, if you want, you'll be rewarded with a similar product or package or simply, you'll get a refund.
-Software issues, such as unexpected incompatibility with a platform or unexpected with Community. If you detect some issue like this, you'll get free support instantly.

If you're wondering about some other potential issue please write us to samu@ketroware.com

Thanks for your support.
