Managed to find the full monty kit in tindie site after looking at the drop down menu. Have just bought it + the 3 modules.

@radellaf - That's what I was thinking too.. Gotta have a video display generator to directly generate video to a composite monitor to really do it right.. Maybe that's a good project for an add-on to be built by a hobbiest, but I'm not sure I'd be up for the modifications needed to the BASIC rom.. :-)

This needs a character generator, RF modulator, and a (now vintage?) 15" color TV for that real nostalgic 8-bit PC setup. A serial terminal is fine, but you don't get the fun of the "razor sharp" 256x192 graphics some of those home computers could display natively. Also funny that the keyboard's MCU dwarfs the power of the main CPU. The matrix should be scanned by the CPU through a peripheral interface chip (I/O line expander) to be authentic. Anyway, neat project.

Hi Chelsea,

You wrote an awesome article. The flow was good.

I am nuts, can't believe i read this article twice. Something i wouldn't normally have done.

Z80 microcontroller + progamming and C programming were what i almost detested as a student in 1990.

I love reading your article though & am almost ready to jump in on this RC2014 project. 600 soldering points i feel may not be my greatest challenge. Seeing it to completion & enjoying it may be the greatest challenges though.
