29350RE: [midatlanticretro] Roll Call for VCF E
- Feb 23, 2013I find it interesting the similarity of things today with people taking the
Raspberry Pi (and/or Arduino) and controlling things, creating projects,
etc. Obviously the Pi is much more advanced...but it is striking the
similarity to the Apple I. Bare board, bring your own power supply,
keyboard, mouse, case, storage, etc...
Bill G - OK Yes RCA Cosmac
Dave Comley - Some sort of video or "action" if possible for the KIM, but
It's not always easy to translate the real homebrew spirit into today's
context. We're really not educating if all we do is show the computers
playing primitive games only. Many people back then would build a SBC to do
something behind the scenes like operate a HAM tuner, A-D conversion, and
serial controls. I think it would be great if for example the KIM was set
up to shine a LCD light when certain HEX values were in a particular
location in memory to illustrate how the KIM was used to automate the
lighting of a house (doll house) or operate a train set.
But on the other hand we have lives, so do what you can.
