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 !

Eink, E-paper, Think Ink – Collin shares six segments pondering the unusual low-power display technology that somehow still seems a bit sci-fi – http://adafruit.com/thinkink
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
