Digix computer
« on: December 18, 2013, 12:49:37 pm »
I was planning to use the digix to make a standalone retro computer. Kind of like amigojapan's or ben hecks. It would use the tvout library for output and a ps/2 or usb keyboard for input. First it would run the port of tinybasic then I would plan to make my own "operating system" with SD support. I have never used ethernet or wifi with an arduino but it being able to run browse the internet would be sweet. Feel free to help use this idea.
