Re: VCF Zürich 2018

Ohh, I missed this one, damn!

It could have been the opportunity to meet too.

Re: Pluggy McPlugface PS/2 adapter is available

By luck I just found a nice slim PS/2 keyboard in a second-hand shop today. Works great with the Pluggy adapter ;-)

Re: Pluggy McPlugface PS/2 adapter is available

I just wanted to make sure, as I can't find my old ps/2 keyboards.

Has anyone tried to plug an USB keyboard to the adapter, using this kind of converter?

Thanks for your feedback

Thanks for the keyboard adapter kit. It's simple but very well designed and finished, with quality components!

Re: All-In-One DB9

v1 Finalized this weekend. All fits in a compact box, including the Nano to control from a PC. https://bruno.kerouanton.net/images/180923-gigatron-box.png TODO: - When the Nano AND the controler are connected together it causes an issue, as it starts Snake. I'll have to check why. Maybe adding a phy...

Re: All-In-One DB9

Thanks for the feedback. Yes the VCC is supposed to be an output and there is no protection. I'll try to see if the usb input on the arduino nano can be used to power the Gigatron. Meanwhile I've prototyped the thing, except for the arduino and power which still runs on the "official" input. https:/...

Re: All-In-One DB9

Sure.
This is also a proof of concept for my beginner's building skills. I hope this weekend I'll have this finished. Already soldered the wires on the PCB.

It's really crap compared to all the impressive hacks all of you guys did until now. #mindblown!

All-In-One DB9

I like the Gigatron esthetics so much, that I hanged it on my wall! Unfortunately that means if I want to use it, I need to plug at least 4 cables (power, audio, vga and controler), which isn't really nice hanging around. https://bruno.kerouanton.net/images/180917-gigatron-frame.png Since the DB9 co...

Re: 200+

I've been catching up the few months of missed messages on the forum :D Congrats for this ! Wouldn't be nice by the way, to profide a S/N to each sold Gigatron, on a sticker label? Maybe too late?! Anyway, I am amazed how many side-projects are been done on the Gigatron, from 64K extension to Tetris...
