Atari 800 Handheld
For the final project of The Ben Heck Show I built an all-new original hardware
Atari 800 handheld!
Unlike my past Atari computer laptops this uses the original IC’s with an all-new custom circuit board. It also fits in your hand and runs off Li-Po batteries.

Happy Halloween everybody!
It has been six years since we last explored the paranormal world of ghosts. Does the team still have what it takes? Will anyone notice Tiffany is played by a different person? Find out tonight in a brand new episode of Ghost Squad!
For some reason we are making a sequel to our 2011 Halloween special “Ghost Squad”. You can watch the original below:
The sequel will be released on YouTube October 31st, 2017, assuming we manage to finish it on time. Which of course we will, right?
Stay tuned, and warm up that popcorn!
I recently used an ancient Sony Mavica disk camera to document Bay Area Maker Faire 2017.

By now you’ve probably heard of the
Hackaday Prize – a contest to create an open and connected “device of the future” with a grand prize of a trip to space.
