Totally full of retro coolness
One of the first "handheld" game systems that took cartridges. More of a tabletop thing than a handheld in the vein of a Game Boy or something. You can get a sense of the size of it from the picture. Used a spinning mirror to update the screen (which was made up of red LEDS) 15 times a second. A really cool idea that was totally destroyed by the stupid-ass video game crash of 1984. Boxed systems were selling for like $30.
Four games managed to get released before the crash, Defender, Turtles, Super Cobra, and one other I can't think of right now. Graphics are a little blocky by today's standards, but this was 1982 we're talking about here. I'm suprised they got the thing to work at all. Now and then one of these things pops up on Ebay, price: $800 -$1500. God damn. Anyone have one of these they want to get rid of? I'll trade my car. I have two so it's ok. It's a 94 Ford Escort, kid of a heap but it still runs.
