PiDP-8: A PDP-8 Minicomputer on Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

Hack or Kit

We’re digging this retro themed project tutorial from Oscar Vermeulen up on Hackster.io.

Project goal: to create a faithful, low-cost replica of the PDP-8/I minicomputer (1968).Operated through a Blinkenlights front panel, it should bring back the user experience from the past. Replicating all stages in its development: from 1968 to 1979, from teletype & paper tape all the way through to hard disks and multi-user systems.

See my PiDP-8 web site for full details.
