People need affordable learning games. Worldwide, 4.1 billion people earn under $3,000 per year, meaning that even a $100 computer is often out of reach for the world’s emerging middle class. Playpower is targeting a $10 platform based on the 8-bit 6502 microprocessor that makes learning games affordable for “the other 90%.” Playpower designs high quality learning games, conducts field trials to confirm that they work, and fosters collaborations between game designers, cognitive scientists and NGOs.
