    Received mine today. I put power to the USB-C port and it booted right into the EA game called Realm of Impossibility. I thought that was humorous. The pcb layout has been updated and optimized a bit vs the pictures in the listing. No instructions, just the item, a USB-C to USB cable for power and a 2-wire line and connector for a battery to be soldered onto it.

    Looking forward to a PDF manual in the future and someone to source out a 3d printed case for it.

    This thing seems very cool so far. Looking forward to seeing what I can do with it.

    Updated review after using it a bit. Most all the instructions needed are all on this page. Some USB keyboards will be seen by the USB port, some won’t. It might have to do with some of my keyboards are backlit and might need more power. My EVGA Z12 keyboard won’t work but my basic Monoprice keyboard does work. On my previous review I also made mention of “USB-C”, when it is instead “Micro USB” that powers it. I’m looking forward to someone designing a 3D printed case for this.

    Just received mine.
    Works fine. Same limitation than original hardware on some games. Seems some keyboard incompatibilities like the other reviewer. Best is to use a basic USB keyboard. I had an incompatibility with a 512MB SD card. Fine with a 4GB.
    Except that is a very enjoyable little piece.

    Looking now to a case. If nobody create it soon, I’ll probably create it from my side.
