so this is off the record and this is probably a dumb idea heres the “problem” i wanna solve,
connecting 2 devices can be easy with just some wires or super complicated with bluetooth to a smartphone over the internet and back again. for every game with multiplayer to support that could be hard, and thus there is little reason to use these devices and the cycle begins
disclamer this isnt a project right now and there might be something out there that already is doing this (do say if you find any)
anyway heres the idea
generic electronic link (sue me i just want a cool acronym)
a micro that is on the extension board (hat) would have all the know how on how to interface with IR, radio, wifi, bluetooth, brainwaves, you name it and sends it in a general fashion to the pokitto or even other device that could support it.
to set configurations like passwords of wifi, radio frequency type, IR protocol or whatever, gel would extend a text like interface that can be displayed on the pokitto
from the game programmer perspective GEL is just like wire and would only need to add a geli(nterface) configuration tab in there menu’s for people to configure stuff
