A few days ago the postie arrived with a PocketCHIP for me. It’s a handheld Linux computer, with a keyboard and touchscreen, designed for easy hardware and software tinkering. One of its big drawcards is that it runs PICO-8, a “fantasy console”, which has “harsh limitations” such as a 32kb limit on the size of games, and a 128×128 resolution display, but is very easy to program for. If you enjoy pulling things apart to see how they work, both PocketCHIP and PICO-8 are worth a look.
