Pt 101005

BIG NEWS! On ASK AN ENGINEER – Jeri Ellsworth will be our guest! Sat. 5/14 10pm ET. Jeri and Ladyada will talk all things electronics, LIVE this Saturday night ***TONIGHT*** at 10pm ET!

Jeri was hacking, modding, and running her own computer store in the late 1990s—and more

Jeri Ellsworth is an American entrepreneur and self-taught computer chip designer. She is best known for, in 2004, creating a Commodore 64 emulator within a joystick, called Commodore 30-in-1 Direct to TV. The “computer in a joystick” could run 30 video games from the early 1980s, and was very popular during the 2004 Christmas season, at peak selling over 70,000 units in a single day via the QVC shopping channel. She is a pinball machine aficionado and owns over 60 full-sized pinball arcade games.

Jeri recently put up photos of her “chip fab”. She writes, “It took me 2 years to achieve my dream of making transistors and simple IC’s at home.”

Most recently, she’s been creative “A to Z of electronics videos with us as well as posting videos and content on element14.com – all while helping to create the largest 555 timer contest in the world.
