The possibilities extend FAR beyond retro gaming, though. Imagine a world where your CPU rebuilt itself to be an application-specific integrated circuit for every program you use. Imagine releasing a game along with code to create the custom-designed chip it runs on. Imagine not needing an operating system, or not waiting for anything. This technology could save us from the tyranny of Moore's Law. I'm very excited indeed.
