The Chameleon

Well, that died an awful death, and quickly.

I wrote about the Coleco Chameleon a few months ago. Seemed great. I was in.

Then reality happened. I think this story explains it all:
Crowdfunded Game Console Is Made Out of Tape, Cardboard, and Fake Circuits.

In short, the tech wasn't really tech at all. Or it was other people's tech (like a Super Nintendo unit, or a video capture board that was dishonestly labeled as a prototype motherboard).

Coleco removed their name from the project because they couldn't verify a working prototype.

Hey, at least we have Stardew Valley, right?
