OUYA, funded in one day
Today we were introduced to Ouya, a new(?) kind of video game console powered by Android. The cheaper (99$) and more open console is supposed to encourage developers to make games for larger screens by allowing them to publish games similar to the mobile platforms.
Yves Bahar and The Fuseproject (creators of OLPC and Jambox) are designing the hardware and by the looks there is nothing revolutionary. An interesting idea is that they encourage hackers and tinkerers to modify both hardware, software and explore the product without loosing warranty. The hardware specs are released, but suggestions are encouraged.
It did not even take a day to get the project funded and pledges are open for another month. So what happens now?
