I am afraid the main customer target group are those who are oblivious 
about the existance of the KeyRah, don't know where to find an empty C64 
case and pretty much unaware of Retropie applications of a Raspberry Pi.

Hopefully though the hardware will offer something beyond this concept. 
The handheld is a bit interesting, and I suppose can be compared to the 
Sinclair Vega+ that already has been funded. The availability of 
handheld, dedicated devices probably means prices have been lowered and 
that more manufacturers in China now offer custom designed hardware even 
in moderate volumes.

Best regards
