It's a unique device of the 80s that existed in rumors only.
In the decade of the 80s, a console called Vectrex That included some innovative elements such as integrated graphics and vector graphics, but unfortunately he suffered from the videogame crisis known as 1983.
Interestingly, in 2003 the magazine Edge came to an alleged existence disclosure and Vectrex Mini stating that a fan had seen the small console on the presiding desk of the manufacturing company during a tour of the facilities in the early 80's.
Even about 8 years ago, someone who claimed to be a relative to a person who worked in Milton Bradley had some scanned images of the alleged Mini Vectrex, which reinforced in some way the idea that at least the product planning action.
Well, although the Vectrex Mini has just mentioned rumors, we now have that the National Museum of Video Games at Frisco, Texas has completely confirmed its existence as they have been successful in obtaining a prototype for their collection (through Gizmodo).
We have heard that he suggested that the Mini Mini was just the Vectrex counterfeiting and not a real system at all. We have already taken the unit separately and inside it is complete circuits and original Vectrex console. pic.twitter.com/1VV1NG7SRl

And for those who suspected their truth, the museum even reinstated the device and was able to work, as you can see in the video below:

The small version of the Vectrex console brings to a screen, is controlled, and even integrates a treatment that can capture the top and can be transported , so I definitely look like a device that was the inspiration for laptops today like the Nintendo Change.
