SMACH Z is exhibited in Hall 2 "2-N 02". It is in the red arrow part.

Although it is hard to see, there is a USB Type-C port for outputting to the earphone jack and the main body charging & external monitor on the bottom part. Although it was said that it was almost completed to the completion shape, the terminal which was exhibited was not turned on because the pushing comfort of the button and the finish of the software side were not finished. Still it was said that the design surface was almost completed, so I will try to observe it from every angle of 360 degrees.

On the left side of the controller, the analog stick at the bottom, the touch-type game pad on the top "Z-Pads". Furthermore, the button written "Z" next to Z-Pads seems to be usable for sleeping the screen.

On the right side of the controller is also a touch-type game pad Z-Pads at the top, below which are four buttons A / B / X / Y. The two buttons on the left of Z-Pads are set to allow key setting freely, and it seems that you can set the volume control function, etc.

There is nothing particularly on the left side. A certain degree of thickness is given to make it easy to grip the terminal.

This is the right side. It is characterized by being rounded as a whole.

At the center of the top surface is a power button, a Micro-USB port for using SMACH Z as a controller, a display port that can be used for output to an external monitor, a USB port for connecting with external equipment, a volume control button. Below the display port is the exhaust port.
