Anyone ever tried to code on the V.Smile from vtech?

category: general [glöplog]
I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to create a demo on any of the V.Smile systems from vtech.

This would be a cool system for wild compos as it seems that the system itself is very powerful and uses ROM-Cartridges. Sadly i haven't found any real specs about the used hardware. It even seems that no one really tried to hack it:


There is also a more advanced CD based system which even has 3D graphics - i haven't played any games on it by myself but it seem like it's nearly as powerful as a PS1 and is called V.Smile Pro:


If you have or find more information about the hardware inside this piece of plastic, please share with me. Thanks.
please, do not post pictures with "VTEC JUST KICKED IN YO".

it's too obvious.

It's based on an ARM processor:
