    Hey, sorry I didn't post this yesterday I had company and forgot about all about this! :P

    Our voting system was that the staff voted for 3 entries. If you came 1st (lol...sorry I'm childish) you got 3 points, 2nd you got 2 and 3rd you got 1 point.

    Mars_x - Winner with 22 points and Mars_x wins the K1GBA prize!

    Winning entry

    Honourable mentions for mezut360 with 9 points and Kiaku with 8 points. Veho was the only other member left with 3 points...though technically he should have been disqualified because his entry was not really a handheld...bloody chuff. :yaypsp: Click their names to see their entries, they don't win anything at all.

    Congratulations! Very well deserved, looks like you've put a lot of time and effort into creating that console - I want to buy one now. :(

    The presentation of the domino, although not essential to win, I thought was top drawer. Very well done.

    Costello and the K1 team are now stealing the idea and will be working on it. :yay:

    @ben_j suspicions were right! :O

    Congratulations! Yeah I agree, the specs sheets for the Domino look very professional. mezut's video for the HEX was very cool too! :)

    I kinda wish I had gone with my original plan of either coming up with a crazy unique idea or none at all instead of posting the boring entry that I did. Oh well.

    Congrats guys. I had entered myself, but when I couldn't find my ruler and the realization that my MS Paint skills sucked, and that all the other entries blew mine out of the water, I decided a quiet retreat was the best course of action. Again, congrats guys, I really enjoyed the entries and I wish I could have gave the competition a better go. :D Maybe next time.

    Yay! Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I had a lot of fun making this.

    And also thanks to K1GBA for the prize, but as I said on the original thread, I dont need/want the prize!

    Now what to do with the prize? I have a couple of suggestions:
    1.- Keep it for a future contest
    2.- Give it to the second place
    3.- Make some sort of giveaway via social sites (yay publicity!)
    4.- If the staff is ok with it, just give it to Hadrian's daugther, since she so much wants it :D

    I'd like to say, there is a revised version of the handheld, thanks to Veho, it solves a lot of things
    and works better (tho with some tech changes). The image is here:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Finally:

    I know this might be a joke, but if its not, I would gladly hand over the files I used, (PSDs, AIs, Fonts, Images, etc).
    And even work for free closely with the team to make it happen, I have many more ideas for the OS, it would be fun!

    Congratulations to everyone who participated, there were a lot of creative / fun designs.

    Well I've just got my daughter a GBA Mirco with a flashcart so she won't have need for this now.

    I think we should give it to the second place entry if everyone else agrees.

    This entry is awesome, I wish it was real. Though, I have to question why there would be both 4-button and 2-button controllers, and both analog and non-analog ones.
    But, if this was real and had 3G I could use it as a phone, as well as a proper gaming console, it would be the best of two worlds. :D

    Edit:
    I got an idea. Make a kickstarter for an actual production run. The detailed information you've already provided will be enough for the page, and I would definitely back it.

    yeah, we should actually do a kickstarter for this :O Jdbye nice idea
    though we need someone with a lot of time on their hands to take care of it.. I will see if I can find someone :P

    also I'm all for giving the prize to runner-up. I think he wants it very much so :P
