A possible portable Amstrad CPC with an Odroid GO ?

-

The Odroid GO is a portable video game console with a LCD screen (320 x 240), battery, direction pad and 6 buttons (easy to build). It uses the ESP32 SOC microcontroller. The builtin firmware emulates old consoles (GB, GBC, NES, SNES, SMS, GameGear and Colecovision). More interesting, it can emulate a ZX Spectrum, MSX both using a Z80. So of course, it could lead to a possible Amstrad CPC firmware.

Reading the last page of the September Odroid magazine, Andrew ARMSTRONG intends to use an Odroid Go to transfer to and from an Amstrad CPC 464.
