Playdate: Creating a new handheld video game console

September 17 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
Caldwell Lounge, 2221 Hillsborough Street
Raleigh, NC 27607 United States

Playdate—a tiny, yellow, handheld game console—made a bigger splash than its creators envisioned when it was announced in May. Relying on a combination of old tech (a 1-bit black-and-white display), new design (from Sweden’s renowned Teenage Engineering) and some just-plain-weird ideas (a side-mounted crank as a game controller), software maker Panic Inc. hopes that Playdate can carve itself a niche in a video game marketplace where giants dominate. Although Playdate won’t be released until next year, but Greg Maletic, Panic’s Director of Special Projects, will give you an insider’s peek at the decisions that have driven Playdate’s conception, design, manufacture and marketing.
