XaviX PORT - Game / computer platform:
This game console has potential! The concept is a low priced game console that has no brain. It is simply a interface to your TV with a place to insert a device/game cart.
The cartridges contain the processor and video generation circuits so the system is limitless! As processors and graphics get better so will the games/applications.
The games come with their own interfaces for example bowling comes with a bowling ball that you hold and the top of the cartridges have no space/size limit so they can be as big is necessary.
The bowling has sensors that watch you use/roll the ball and translate your movements into the game. Baseball and Tennis work in a similar way with racquets, balls and bats!
In the future the port can be used for other things like home security and automation. The only limit is our imaginations.
