The unique and most powerful Windows 10 pocket box at the time of announcement will probably never hit the market. Smach Z project threatened with bankruptcy

It looks like the Smach Z handheld game console will never see the light of day. Recently, the company sent out a message to community members that it lost the support of its main investor and, most likely, will soon declare bankruptcy. The project still has chances of life, but they are scanty.

Recall that Smach Z was introduced back in 2014 under the name SteamBoy. Then the creators of the device spoke about SteamOS at the core. After that, the prefix managed to change its name, platform, and the release dates were constantly postponed.

Unfortunately, financial setbacks and some problems with the equipment did not allow the project to find life, although some may consider that the project was originally fraudulent. It is also unclear whether those who have participated in fundraising campaigns can expect to receive a refund.

It is worth noting that at the time of the announcement and even the re-announcement with the change of name, Smach Z was a unique product, which had no analogues on the market. But now there are already a lot of such consoles. For example, the Netbook OneXplayer released on Indiegogo One.
