PLAYPOWER is something you guys should know about.

Just today on Twitter, I stumbled upon this magnificent volunteer based project to make very cheap educational game systems using 8-bit graphics to help on developing countries like India or Pakistan.

The price of these systems? Around 12 US dollars. Impressive.

Put this in perspective, imagine all those bootleg NES clones that you usually find on shopping malls, but made for a good cause with completely original software created by volunteers. Way to turn a problem into a solution, ain't it?

You can check their website here for a more detailed explanation of this project.

I am really excited for the possibilities in the use of older and cheaper technology to keep the world up to date.

8-Bit fans and followers, unite for a good cause!
