Hyperkin working on a portable n64 clone?

Another article from Nintendo Life to discuss:

Even more than the prospect of a SupaBoy 64 (does anybody have Hyperkin’s portable SNES? - curious to hear your thoughts on it), I believe this is the first sighting of an n64 clone console. Not exactly sure when the patents expire but I wonder what implications this has for the N64 as a retro console to be desired by the public.

Have the clones for NES, SNES, Genesis, etc. had any effect on game pricing or other parts of the retro gaming community?

Curious about the issue with the power brick; i've never heard of them being one of the vulnerable parts of the console, just the control stick.

I too have doubts about a Retron 64 selling well - as in just a clone of that one console. But what about a combination of NES/SNES/N64. Would that be more intriguing? Or something with HDMI without the need to mod the original console? I could see both of those as distinct possibilities.
