I've had my eye on this project for the past few months: http://www.snega2usb.com

Anyone interested in building one? Possibly as part of the kit I have planned?
Don't all vote at once now.
i think that looks awsome but id break something

i have plenty of old snes games the it could work with

The snega2usb is not for you ifÖ you donít see the difference between making private backup copies of games that you own, and downloading 10,000 ROMs from the internets.


Looks like it isn't for me *shrug*

I do want to build SOMETHING though. I've got a ton more disposable income than before (yay job!). I was thinking of getting an arduino or something, tho

Goodsets ftw Very Happy

Just got my security deposit on my old apartment back, so now I can work on the kit again Very Happy

I've been hearing a lot about the arduino project for the past year or so now; I never looked into them much because IMO arduino is sorta like the BASIC Stamp of AVRs (actually, BASIC Stamp and Arduino are two competing standards), and if you're working with microcontrollers why add unnecessary layers of abstraction and overhead? Although, in the case of Arduino the programming language is essentially just C/C++ with Wiring and is closer to machine code than BASIC is to a PIC or an SX chip in a BASIC Stamp.
Arduino is neat and beginner-friendly, but it's hardly much more difficult to do the work in C (or even assembly, given the limited instruction sets in the common hobbyist micros). You can implement everything Arduino does yourself for less than the cost of Arduino, plus you get to learn while you implement it.
I liked the idea of Arduino because it was cheap, there are tons of hacks with it, and you can write straight AVR-C if you want to.

Don't know if its worth getting or not, as I have *no* idea what I'd do with it :/
Interesting video:



tl;dw PICAXE is unbelievably high-level (srsly using only a flowchart to program wtf?), AVRs are awesome, Arduino is just a glorified AVR devboard, shields are NEATO!, and ye ole ASM programmers are dicks (but I really CAN code faster and more efficiently in ASM than C; inlining is for pussies Razz).
