The Kickstarter funding campaign for SMACH Z, formally SMACH Zero, the first handheld Steam Machine to play Steam games on the go, has gone live.
SMACH Z can be preordered at a special Kickstarter price of 299 euros and 499 euros for the PRO version. Also, early backers can get it by 199 euros on a very limited Early Bird offer, thought this tier has already sold out.
We covered the initial announcement for the device back in August and I’m pleased to see that the Kickstarter has already started well, making over 89,000 Euros.

The company is seeking to raise 900.000 euros to fund SMACH Z production and tools, following in the footsteps of other recent crowdfunding examples like Ouya, Oculus Rift or Pebble Time.
SMACH Z will be powered by AMD Embedded G-Series processors,allowing it to play many recent games without drawing too much power. It also has an HDMI output and
