Old-school arcade games were so protected that hacking is the only way to preserve them before all boards are dead, and the games are lost.
– an overview of famous old-school arcade games
– their incredible hardware
– the permanent piracy
– the awesome protections (designed to commit suicide !)
– what was required to preserve some of them from being lost for ever.
This talk is a homage to Michael Steil’s Ultimate Commodore 64 presentation at 25c3: you should watch it, it’s inspiring in content and quality !

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
