Ric Turner is a former Disney Imagineer who created special effects
for theme park attractions and shows such as Space Mountain, The

toys, restoring pinball machines and arcade games, and putting

Halloween and Christmas. Ric will be showing videos of the light shows
and showing what it takes to create them.

Jeremy Douglass
People need affordable learning games. Worldwide, 4.1 billion people
earn under $3,000 per year, meaning that even a $100 computer is often
out of reach for the world's emerging middle class. Playpower is
targeting a $10 platform based on the 8-bit 6502 microprocessor that
makes learning games affordable for "the other 90%." Playpower designs
high quality learning games, conducts field trials to confirm that
they work, and fosters collaborations between game designers,
cognitive scientists and NGOs.
