Description: The PoGa kit is a Portable Game Development console that uses 4D Systems' Graphic Language (4DGL). The PoGa incorporates a 128xRGBx128 pixel full color TFT display, 'standard' game console push button layout for controlling the game flow, a small loudspeaker for sound effects, and a micro SD card for storing images and game data. It is driven by the tiny yet powerful GOLDELOX-PoGa custom graphics processor from 4D Labs. Graphics, text, image, animation and countless more features are built right inside the chip. For portability the PoGa can be powered for many hours on standard 3xAAA batteries.

The 4D Graphics language provides enough power and flexibility to make some really cool games and learn the 'art of programming' with a leisurely learning curve. The 4D Workshop incorporates a text editor, graphics tools, compiler and program down-loader in a neat and easy to use package. You can have your first demo game running within minutes and then start to understand how to modify and improve existing games or use 'building blocks' of code to create your very own games!

Note: These have a MicroSD card slot, but do not come with cards. They also do not come with batteries, but take standard AAAs. See the related items below.

Features:

    *
      Single chip, low cost educational game development platform, incorporating the tiny GOLDELOX-PoGa graphics processor chip.
    *
      Comes in an easy to build kit form with very low parts count and cost: GOLDELOX-PoGa chip, 6 buttons, Color LCD-TFT, Battery Holder and few discrete components.
    *
      Display: 1.44", 128xRGBx128 resolution, 65K color TFT-LCD (directly interfaced to the GOLDELOX-PoGa chip).
    *
      Colors: 65K simultaneous colors.
    *
      MicroSD Card Interface: Supports the PoGa-Disk which can store and load up to 512 games and other applications as well as images and video clips. It can also be used as a storage medium for data logging applications during run time.
    *
      Sound Support: Single channel sound engine with extended RTTTL format and allows complex generation of game sounds.
    *
      Console: Layout fashion follows most standard game consoles with 6 buttons for game and non game related application control.
    *
      Expandable: Power and UART lines are available via 8pin expansion port.
    *
      Battery: Supports 3 x AAA batteries for mobility (high capacity alkaline or lithium recommended).
    *
      Supports the high level 4DGL language platform, syntax very similar to C.
    *
      Software Tools: Free fully integrated 4D Workshop3 IDE software development tool suite.

I bought this from sparkfun a long time ago, but never got around to putting it together. It's still sitting in the original box, waiting for a good owner to buy it and put it together. Please, set aside ฿7 to give this Poga a good home.

On Dec 3rd 2013 ฿7 would be:
7 * USD 1,105.00 = USD 7,735.00
or
7 * EUR 804,999 = EUR  5634,993

Wow! Expensive gadget  Wink

As I own two of these seems like a good investment.
I wonder if anyone is willing to pay ฿7 for them right now... they are vintage you know.
