  GamePark GP2X: a Linux-based handheld game system

  Presented by:
    Bill Kendrick

  The GamePark  'GP2X' is a Linux-based handheld video game system and
  media player.  Inititally released in late 2005, a number of revised
  versions have been released, including 2009's 'Wiz' (which includes
  a touchscreen and accelerated 3D graphics).

  Along with commercial games, many homebrew applications are available,
  including games and emulators (computers, video game consoles and
  arcade games).

  Bill Kendrick will briefly demonstrate the system and show some homebrew
  applications.  If possible, developing software for the GP2X will be
  discussed, as well.
