2016 Workgroup Topic Proposals

Computers are tiny and cheap!

I just bought a raspberry PI zero.  It’s the size of a stick of gum, it’s a complete computer (plays minecraft and browses the web), and I got mine from Microcenter for $0.99 .  This isn’t unique.  Ardunio, beaglebone, CHIP, small cheap hackable computers have entered a new age.

So far, the game-related uses of this new age appear to be hand-held MAME players.  Meanwhile, everyone’s innovating over in the AR/VR space.

I’d like to work with a group to brainstorm how to use the new age of small cheap hackable (wearable, hideable) computers to make  innovative videogames.
