I talked about the Smach Z last year when its Kickstarter was cancelled as the creators considered their options. Many months on, and they are having another go, with a slightly more refined offering. Still powered by Steam OS, it brings Linux PC, with a Windows 10 option, gaming in a truly mobile format.
While we can argue all day about the games coming to it, and the potential for emulators and piracy, and so on. The huge interest on day 1, $200K of its $250K main goal shows there's plenty of interest in portable gaming, if a company is brave enough to find the market!
Check out the new campaign and imagine a Vita 2 with these innards!
UPDATE: The campaign has passed its first funding goal!
