You don't have to wait for someone to create a $10,000 degree. You can get a fully accredited bachelors degree right now for about $5,000. The secret is to test out of as many classes as possible --- using CLEP, DSST, TECEP, and ECE tests. These are tests on various college courses and if you score high enough they are worth the same credit as the credit earned by paying tuition and taking a butt-in-seat course. Most colleges will limit how many credits they will accept from testing out of the course (they also limit credits from other colleges as well), but there are three colleges in the U.S. that don't limit these credits so you can test out of nearly your entire degree.
