This is an early video game console and runs on an S2650 processor. It was initially made in Baldock, Hertfordshire by Voltmace.
First distributed in a deal between Voltmace and Teleng around 1977, the former were later more famous in the UK for producing joysticks and other peripherals for Acorn machines.
This could be considered part of the Interton VC 4000 group of consoles, and although using different carts, hardware wise it would be compatible with Radofin and Prinztronic machines, there apparently was an adaptor to be able to use interton cartridges.
Teleng would stop producing the machine in 1980, Voltmace would find a new partner in Videomaster, who produced this version of the machine, now manufactured in Hong Kong, after Teleng's parent company closed the Essex factory.
The game cartridges include Duck hunting, horse racing, car Racing and of course card games.
