Timeline:

Rewards:

(Graphics do not include new rewards! See text in 'Rewards Section' to the right of page for all new and updated rewards! Thanks all.)

Stretch Goals:

We've launched our Stretch Goals! We've made the first two extremely easy to reach because we want to give all of you access to our new website and a special Kickstarter edition console. There is still plenty of time left in our campaign to reach these goals.

Postage and Packaging: All postage included in rewards are standard post. This includes rewards marked as free postage. For registered postage see the faq, adjust your pledge and message the creator. Registered postage is the only way we can 'guarantee arrival' of your reward. T&C's in faq below.

Product Design Notes: Design is subject to change. Note that the console will be slightly taller that in the main image (by about 1/3, around 180x120x50mm), will have rounded corners and the carbon fibre design (hydrographics, dipped!) will be decided at a later stage but should be similar to the mock-up provided. The console will have a lid with 4 screw ports (covered!) so you can access the CPU, memory card and internal USB ports. We're hoping to deliver a beautiful little console!

Disclaimer: I do not own, nor claim to own, any rights to console logos, games & software displayed on this page other than that of the 'MINI-EMU'. Those displayed are for presentation purposes only. Software is open source and 'customised'. Theme shown 'Simple' is owned by Nilsbyte, we will be including our own branded theme, but should you wish to switch this to one of the more popular themes we will provide a tutorial on how to do that.

Thank you for backing my project!

Risks and challenges

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/components & we also have a workshop.

The thing that we can think of is not being able to get enough CPU boards in time from our supplier, 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.

We'll keep you up to date about our progress on our 'Updates' page. (Now up to 11 updates!)
