Here’s a half-hour video produced by Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation in 1967 describing the integrated circuit (IC), its design and development process, and giving examples of late 1960s uses of IC technology. Serves to provide some perspective on how the industry started, and how far we’ve come. [via]

Myles recently ported an open Tetris clone to the Arduino. We added support for the Nunchuck (so now it works with both the Nunchuck and the Classic Controller) as well as music!

This project is a small video game console build of a sandwiches a lithium button cell between the psp joystick and the pcb. It uses a ARM Cortex M0 32 bit cpu and is able to produce 3D graphics and sound. Output resolution is 320×240 composite or s-video and is able to produce 256 colors with standard palette. Sound is 8 bit 15khz stereo audio. Check construction details on the link below.

A2601 is an FPGA-based clone of the legendary ATARI 2600 video console, developed completely by retromaster.wordpress.com, including VHDL code and a custom PCB. Retromaster recreated 6502 CPU in FPGA along with TV interface which enables NTSC TV and audio playback. Check project details on the link below.
