Before that, you need a prototype that works flawlessly. For something as complex as a ColecoVision, doing several prototypes until you get it just right cannot be avoided.

Probably easier just to Rob a Bank and probably more likely to be successful as 80% of Crowd funding  fails !

I've seen Eduardo talk about this in the past but I just can't see him getting it done. Look how long it's taking to get the SGMs distributed. I know that crap happens, but if he takes up the project he needs help from someone to keep the project rolling along.

If I recall currectly, his hardware guru in Brazil would be the one designing and prototyping any possible CV2 and from what I've heard, that part would be pretty easy for him. It would then be a matter of taking it from prototype to manufacturing to shipping that would most likely delay matters considerably.

I thought the CV2 (Colecovision 2) was just an imaginary creature, sort of mythical beast , like Unicorns, Griffins and Dragons ??   Will the Colecovision 2 Ever be Made ??

I would love it if the original hardware was under the hood, with HDMI out and maybe a built in scanline filter. It would be awesome if it had the capability of playing Atari 2600 games too, like the original did back in the day.

 

I just hope it's not another Android emulator on a chip gimmick. We seriously have enough of those already.
