Is sufficiently Sonos-like (has synchronisation, does Spotify, Internet radio, local music collection). The server software (runs on various NAS, Pi & alikes etc) is still mainatined. The player devices need to be sourced on eBay though (Squuezebox Radio, Boom, Player) or 'handbuilt' form Pi/alikes + DAC + speakers.
Actually this was crowdfunded at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the64-computer-and-games-console.
It followed the usual path of delays, changes, dissapoointments, lack of updates from which they've now seem to have recovered (this actually needs a Phoenix rising from the ashes icon).
The original indiegogo products are still delayed but at least they have promised that original backers will receive the C64 mini.
We've all managed to use a keyboard and mouse on our regular PC's for years with 2 hands, I don't see why we suddenly need 3 hands for this then.
If the Good Lord had intended us to interact efficiently with these devices we would have been Intelligently Designed with Bluetooth, ot at least a USB port...
