Time to Exploit Multi Mice Technology

At last, I have started designing multi-mice learning games for K-12. The challenge is to ensure collaboration, competition and project based approach to learning.

So far I have seen about 10 to 15 different games built around this technology in the last 3-4 years. I am not very fascinated by them. Mainly because I see the opportunity lost in these games to create very good learning experience besides creating some fun for the learners. Yes, in our games we will add the fun component to a certain extent.

I am at the high level design stage right now. And it is so exciting already! I feel that there is a lot at stake in making this successful. I don't mean from the business perspective. Multi mice technology truly reduces the total cost of ownership of ICT based learning almost by 75% per child. Imagine the savings on a national scale. Not just in India, this can be used very effectively in all developing and under developed countries.

I have a great team to complete the programming, graphics and usability part after my game and pedagogy design are finalized. I hope to see the first few games ready in about 3-4 weeks. If you have any suggestions, please post them here. Else, stay tuned...
