    Hopefully this thing gets released this year. Would be so awesome playing saturn discs from usb sticks.

    Is this project going anywhere?

    The original video gave me the impression that most of the work had already been done. I'll be the first to admit that I don't know exactly what's involved in bringing a product like this to market, so I'm guessing that progress has happened fairly steadily since the original announcement. Surely he's close to launch by now?

    AFAIK he is struggling to get them to the market - finding good places to mass produce them, building his QA test bench, getting components, etc.

    It sucks that he put his latest updates to be patreon only, so I'm not up to date with the progress. I hope I'll be able to test it once the devices are out.

    I'm not paying Patreon for what are generally quite uninspiring updates. He talked about eXFAT awhile ago, then the other day posted about shells yet again.

    In the professors words, it is "finally close to shipping".

    It kind of looks sexy. Like Soap Bars or something?

    For prototypes, it's not bad (I didn't follow, they might be even 3d printed?).
    Paint it black or grey, leave space for a sticker and you got a deal. You could even make the satiator text spray painted gold (Megadrive colour scheme), white (PAL colour scheme), or have the plastic grey/white with black/purple logo (jp colour scheme), etc.

    My only concern is about whether they fit in the slot or not, since the MPEG cards use a thin metal layer that hugs the port very closely (if the metal is bent a little, you can barely insert the card). A plastic case as thin as the MPEG cards would be brittle, so it has to be made thicker, and then it may not have enough space. But I'm guessing that this is something that was at least tested in advance.
    Either way, hopefully we'll soon see.

    Unfortunately I can't access the last patron-only posts, this may have been addressed there.

    Only the beta units for now.

    Yeah that's obviously 3d-printed with the extrusion method (cheapest). That can't be colored easily, it'd be by hand.

    I prefer if they make it black.

    I also hope it will fit the mpeg slot without issues.

    It plugs in the back? Does the color really matter? I know I don't see the back of my consoles when they are up on the shelf connected up for use. Unless you are using a mirror back glass behind your consoles?

    Oh haha true enough, once plugged in you'll never see it. And in that regard, any sort of paint job whatsoever would be a liability, since it would scrape off while being inserted or removed.

    I'm interested in buying one, but I don't have a 'Siega'. Hopefully it'll work with my Sega console.
