The hardware design of the new Telegea Smartbox has been progressing throughout the summer. Quite a lot of details had to be worked out and some unplanned issues to be solved. But eventually we are there. The schematics and layout are now completed and the first batch of prototypes are being produced. We can’t wait to get our hands on them and start playing.

Meanwhile you can have a look at the specs that this board will have.
