TechDirect will have a ZAPIT GAME WAVE CONSOLE WITH DVD PLAYER for
$39.99 starting Saturday. See the lower right of:
So I wondered what this thing is.
- it seems to be sold in christian bookstores in Ontario
- it seems to run "family oriented games"
- the company seems to have had a near-death experience and has ported
its games to the Blackberry and iPhone
Not very interesting.
But is it hackable? I don't know, but I found an interesting article

That probably helped to make them somewhat portable.
The Mediamatics chip at the core of this thing is no longer supported
by National Semiconductor.
I'm not going to try hacking this.
