For a long time, handheld gaming was dominated by console-based companies – like Nintendo, Sega, Sony, and Neo Geo. It wan’t until the rise of smartphones that handheld gaming shifted away from said organizations into a more PC-friendly realm. That being said, true palm-sized PC gaming machines have been few and far between. And that’s the void that the SMACH Z is attempting to fill.

Created out of a love for handheld consoles, but with a desire to build something more capable, this tiny titan is like a tower, monitor, and controller rolled into one. But it’s small enough to carry with you everywhere you go. The onboard CPU – AMD’s Merlin Falcon RX-421BD SoC – is lightweight and incredibly powerful. And the quad core processors and 4 gigs of RAM ensure that this device can run almost any game on Steam with no lag whatsoever. It also features WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, 5 hours of battery life, a Micro SD slot, a full-HD 6″ touchscreen, and HDMI video output. Finally, someone has made a capable and reasonably portable gaming PC. The SMACH Z is available on Indiegogo starting at $325. [Purchase]
