I wonder what they're angle was to me seems like that would not catch
anyone's attention because it's boring besides the $71 idea. That's
interesting.

Just another "accessible-gaming in mainstream media" (okay, it
certainly pins me as a geek for considering Popular Science as
"mainstream", but that not withstanding... :)

In the May 2008 issue of Popular Science, on page 86, they have a
one-full-page article on "A one-button game system". It's a
pretty...um...boring game. Images are flashed on a postage-stamp
sized display built into a button (screenkeys.com), and if it's a
fish, you push the button. If it's a shark, you don't push the
button or game-over. But they describe how to build it (for
$71.89 in parts, FWIW) and I thought folks here might be interested.
