Introducing the Playdate Gaming System https://kottke.org/19/05/introducing-the-playdate-gaming-system
There's a good photo of one of our playdate test benches in this Oregonian article. The cart covered in devices is a copy of our "runin" station at the factory. We plug lots of devices in and run them a couple of hours monitoring the battery drain and other things.
@ticky holy shit this is the best
playdate has been hiding in plain site for years!
@jaycie The games are going to surprise people I think!
@ticky I'm not sure! We literally thought this up a few days ago 😂
@ticky Have you scaled it up and put in your street yet?
If you have an iOS device I highly recommend you check out https://play.date/media/ and scroll down to the AR section. You can view the device in AR and its really fun to play with.
@tabacco i'm sorry to disappoint you
@grainloom Sadly I can't provide many details right now but we do plan to provide an SDK.
@rstevens yeah, we've managed to keep this a secret for over 4 years!
