Solar Powered Handheld Nintendo Emulator

Solar MP4 (Images courtesy Chinavision)
By Andrew Liszewski

What’s this? A third-party handheld Nintendo emulator that doesn’t look like a piece of crap? I’m shocked! Of course while the name, Solar MP4, seems to keep with the tradition of crappy knock-offs, this little device actually has some impressive features. Besides being able to play MP4 videos up to 320×240 in size on its 3.5 inch TFT screen, it also has built-in emulators for NES, GameBoy and GameBoy Color games. It of course requires you to use ROMS loaded via an SD card, but anyone already interested in classic gaming emulation will know where to find those. It can even function as an e-Book reader with the ability to read aloud any text file as long as it’s written in English or Chinese.

The other obvious feature of the Solar MP4 is the clamshell design which opens to reveal a set of solar panels. Not only can they be used to charge the unit itself (they claim you’ll never need to plug it in) but a USB jack allows you to plug in and recharge other devices too.

Chinavision has it for $123.32, but it’s one of those ‘the more you buy, the cheaper it gets’ schemes.

    It is safe to say that Apple lead the market in consumer based MP3 / MP4 players. Over the years they have brought innovation in the market, but all at a huge cost to the end customer. Whilst the MP4 market is still relativity new a large range is now available, mostly from China and mostly offering the same features but in different packaging.

    MCHMedia http://www.mchmedia.co.uk is pleased to announce a change in direction for the MP4 player market. Through the media box range it offers true functionality with style. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the media box MP4 players don't conform to the norm, they are larger in size than most of their rivals, this is due to the 4100mAh battery, which gives users over 18 hours of continuous video play. This specification alone makes the media box range stand out from the crowd. Available in 3 versions, the Lite, Max and Touch, a touch screen MP4 Player, all are packed with easy to use features and functions.

    The media box range is worth considering when looking for a new MP4 player. The Lite is the MCHMedia entry level player, whilst the Max and Touch are for more seasoned users. The are 6 colours to choose from, and 4 memory options mean you can select the player that best suits your data needs.
