The UzeBox the coolest thing I’ve seen in a really really long time, a full tile-based gaming system built on a Atmega644 + AD725 (which does all the nasty colorburst stuff). Ive spent some time with the AD725 but at the time I was using an Atmega16 and didn’t get nearly as far – pretty much just colorbars 🙁
I’ve already ordered parts to build my own…The project is fully documented, open source hardware and firmware. Is this not the perfect kit or what?
This tetris game is probably at the very upper limit of what is possible using this core, but its really impressive considering there’s no graphics processor or video buffer!
