Tiny target platforms

I’ve had a few people suggest that my little 20 pixel wide LD26 entry, Tiny Runner, could fit on a watch. Whether this was meant in jest or not, it got me thinking about what kind of tiny target platforms are out there.

One of my original reviews actually suggested that I port this game to the Pebble wristwatch… though I think that’s not realistic since Pebble is an e-ink based display and won’t have the refresh rate needed for Tiny Runner to be playable. It would be cool to get this game on some kind of tiny display though. Anyone know of any other devices with a tiny display that might be well-suited for a game like this?

    Sifteo cubes (though refresh rate may still be somewhat of an issue with first-gen ones)
    Dot Matrix Displays
    Those chunky outdoor LED signs
    Electromechanical flip disc displays

    OK, so I realize this is one year late… but the Pebble’s “e-paper” display is actually a low-power LCD, its refresh rate should be totally fine. They’re on sale today, I think, too. (no I don’t work for them! I just have one and like it, and was looking for a LD watchface for it)
