Casio
Loopy (My Seal Computer SV-100)

The Casio Loopy (subtitled My Seal Computer SV-100), was a 32-bit games console sold exclusively in Japan. Released in October 1995, it was unique in that the marketing for it was completely targeted to the female market.

Only 10 games were released for it, most being in the GxB and dress-up genres.

A very interesting feature of this machine was that it included a built-in thermal color printer that could be used to create stickers from game screenshots.

An optional accessory, called "Magical Shop", allowed the machine to be used with outside devices (such as VCRs and DVD players) to obtain images from them, add text, and make stickers from those as well.

The machine features only one controller port, and a mouse port. Looking at the case one can spot a cartridge slot, a huge blue eject button, a power on/off switch, a yellow reset button, and a red power LED. The right side of the case houses a... printer. Printed documents come out from the front of the system (right side).

As you see, little is known about this obscure console. Help is largely welcome!!

Josh Moor reports :
I just found a loopy console for sale and bought it up very quick because I had never seen one before. It uses standard AV outputs on the back instead of requiring a special adpater as some systems do. There is also a contrast knob on the back. The cartridges look much like a Super Nintendo Cartridge. I don't read Japanese but the game I played appears to be a make over game where you customize the look of anime girls. All the pictures in the instruction books are of girls playing so it is more then likely geared towards them. There is also an add-on that inserts into the cartridge slot. It says word processor on it and has AV inputs on it. If you insert a game, it plays the game normally and it might like you take screen shots but I am not sure. If there is no game, it comes up to a menu with several options. The booklet for it shows people inserting pictures from variuos sources. I will try to upload some pictures of it onto my site later.

We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

Loopy

I once read about it in a Italian magazine (they used to make long reports aboput Japanese toy fairs): they said it was originally intended as a toy to make stickers (hence the printer on the side) and at the time no proper games were available.
