This ambitious DIY project is a completely home-built microcomputer complete that provides a in depth and hands on look at how computers tick.
Now a days we talk about computer registers, DMAs, and IRQs as abstract things buried deep inside the microprocessor of our modern computers. This computer showcases all these aspects of modern computing in a very hands on way. Watch the video above to see the computer in action and then hit up the link below if you’re interested in a very ambitious summer project.
Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on Google+ if you'd like.
