The 8-bit computer that's been built by hand
Us tech folk take pride in building our own computers, but these days it's easy, isn't it? As long as you've got a motherboard with the right socket and the right type of memory, you're good to go: lock down the processor, snap in the RAM, pop in the graphics card and plug in the hard disk. Voila, a computer.
He's dubbed it the DUO Adept, and it comes with a specification that won't exactly trouble our fastest machines: 64KB of main memory, 256 bytes of RAM and, in total, 263 lines of code.
It's remarkable what can be done with such a relatively simple machine. His demonstration video, which we've included below, shows off Eisenmann's homemade OS - programmed using a binary interface - and a simple game that he's written himself.
He's even managed to put it into a see-through chassis although, when compared with most of the cases we're used to seeing, it's a little simple. Still, there's one question that needs to be answered about the DUO Adept - can it run Crysis?
