You will not find any information or picture of such system anywhere and i had never seen one before somewhere for sale.
So i had to buy it!
Like all other Kiosk-Systems it's a complete AllinOne-Package. You have a TV, a complete V.Smile Motion system and 5 games included in one demonstration-case. The controller is wired, so that nobody could take it away. (V.Smile Motion has a wiresless controller)
Inside the console is a cartridge, which has a unique cover that i never have seen before. The cartridge is mounted inside the console and could not get removed.
The button of the currently running games is lighting!
As this was completely new, i was not sure what i will find inside. It could have been 5 demo-versions of the games or just the final\retail versions of each games. So the first part was to remove the cover of the game-selection.
What was behind the cover was pretty interesting. They basically moved the main-pcb of the V.Smile Motion outside the console and mounted it on the back-side of the Kiosk-Case. They soldered in a 90 degree cartridge-slot and inside this slot they insert a huge custom cartridge. Which looked like a 5in1 Multicart (5 globs, each for one game)

That way i could dump all games pretty fast with my V.Smile dumper.
Now to the (maybe) sad part. All games matched the already existing dumps of the retail cartridges. Only "Meister Manny" was new/undumped, as the retail cartridge of the V.Smile Motion version is not dumped so far. But mostly for sure, it's also the same as the retail version.
Nevertheless this was a fun challenge to document this pretty rare hardware and we now know for sure the games inside are just like the same as the retail games.
