This blog post takes a closer look at the Macintosh Plus and show how to create a System Boot floppy disk. Besides that it also shows how to get some software to run on this computer.
In this blog post I will be taking a closer look at the WIO Terminal and making a small game using ArduPy which is a combination of Arduino and MicroPython.
This is the micro:bit. It is a pocket sized computer system with motion detection, a built-in compass and Bluetooth technology that can be used to learn programming and electronics.
This is a CNC 3018 Pro router. It can be bought for around 150 euros from various online resellers. It comes unassembled. In this tutorial I will first do the unboxing and then share with you my challenges during the assembly of this CNC router.
What you see here is a Commodore 64 cartridge that I have created by sticking an EPROM and some other components on a breadboard.
A while back I also made a prototype for C64 PLA chip replacement, but I never did any further tests and completed the project. I thought that it was time to do some more tests on the chip. But will it pass the tests? Let's find out...
This is a Magnetic print bed that can be installed on a 3D printer for better adhesion and also so your finished prints can be easily removed. A while back I installed a similar print bed on my main 3D printer, but did not document it apart from some posts on Twitter. In this post I will cover the installation in more detail.
The 4164 DRAM memory chips can be found inside old 8-bit computers like Atari 800XL and Commodore 64. In this blog I will try to explain how they work by going through the datasheet and then building a breadboard with an Arduino to look at the operation in more detail. You can also watch this on youtube.
In my previous blog, I have written a bit about the remake of the PCB board for Atari 800XL computer. Now I will describe the process of acquiring all the parts needed to build it.
To house my set of MiSTer PCBs boards, which are: IO Board v5.6, SDRAM extra slim (XS), USB Hub v2.1 connected with USB Bracket with L-shaped connector, I wanted to 3D print a case. Unfortunately I could not find a design one that met all my needs, so I decided to remix existing Thingiverse designs and combine them into this case.
