Sadly, based on their remarks (because of course people already asked this :D) its maximum operating frequency is somewhere in the neighborhood of ~400KHz, so it's not gonna be running much C64 software any time soon.

Utterly rad, though. Reminds me that I really ought to sit down and learn a bit more about homebrew hardware as I've been meaning to for a long time...

Version 2 is out, upgraded with even more leds:



It actually runs Basic, Forth and 6502 assembly. It's limited to about 60KHz so no chance to put this in an AppleII :(

Very cool


You say "WUAAAAA TOOoooooooo COOoooooooooooooooL" in the first five minutes you watch the video, while the state of being awake and aware of one's surroundings is taking a caffe-break, and your brain fails to regain consciousness but knows it must do it, otherwise it will be dead two days later.

So, at the end of the pipe of your thoughts, there is new incoming socket, and it's what your consciousness thinks - Typical "done because we can" project - Which is then distilled as rebuke: don't try it at home :lol:
