Hi Barrie,

Thanks.
Maybe you can describe it a little bit more.

What kind of properties does the games need?
e.g. it should be possible that another program can run at the same time?


Best regards,
Sandra

That's a scan and select system using a single switch. To the best of my
knowledge, this system was invented in 1972 (known as the Tufts Interactive
Communicator) and has been used ever since as one way of opening up
communication, environmental control, mobility and games.
