Hyperkin’s Game Gear/Master System/Master System Card Adapter for the Retron 5 to be released February 28th!

I love my Retron 5. At its core, the Hyperkin-made system is able to play video game cartridges for the NES, SNES, Genesis, Famicom, Super Famicom, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. Essentially, the Retron 5 plays an emulated ROM dumped from the original cartridge on a HD television via HD-friendly visual filters to select from. PLUS, you can save your game, take screenshots and add language translations for imports as patches! SCORE. But it seems Hyperkin isn’t settling with the Retron 5 being a 9-in-one system (or 10 if you have a Master System converter of some type), as this next announcement instantly caught my attention.

Ahead of Their Time: My 4 Favorite Gadgets That Died Too Soon

Perhaps the greatest tragedy in tech are the heaps of gadgets tossed on the metaphorical funeral pyre too early. Maybe it was poor marketing, an unfounded lack of support, or simply bad timing that did them in, but whatever the case, they died much too soon.  These four pieces of forward-thinking hardware were more a refinement on an already existing platform, and while in some cases bits and pieces of these machines have trickled into other products and services, but all of these gadgets share the fate of extinction. Poor, poor devices….
