We can’t mention the Microvision without talking about Vertex and their common creator, Jay Smith. He has not only created the first console with a built-in game, the first analog stick, the first game to speech synthesis, first stereoscopic 3D, but also the first portable game console to be fitted with an LCD display and the possibilité of changing cartridges.

The Microvision had, amazingly, a great success in its first year on the market despite its low number of titles (12 games) and its enormous battery consumption. The processor is directly included in the cartridges Texas Instruments TMS 1000-100 kHz (4 bits).
