The ZAPiT Game Wave brings back the interactivity that often disappears when people gather to play computer games. The DVD-based game console uses up to six wireless remote controls, letting several people play interactive trivia, word, casino and “parlor” games. The $99 system, which also serves as a DVD player, employs Altera’s MAX II CPLDs, which were picked for their versatility and ability to reduce the cost of materials. The programmable logic devices also provide programmability so changes can be made during production.
