Meet Playdate, the tiny handheld with a crank, which is set back until 2021.

Panic has pushed back the launch of its Playdate handheld from 2020 to 2021. The device is the software developer’s first piece of physical hardware, a handheld with a unique crank alongside traditional buttons for controlling the device. The hardware for the Playdate is finalized and approved by the FCC, meaning it can head into production next month. Panic says there’ll be 20,000 Playdate units available to start, and it will order more batches after that.
