If you've been following along, you've probably seen my Quarterfinals Video and Semifinals Video already:
One of the requirements of the Best Product category is to show some videos of the prototype in action. I have some linked on the sidebar, but I wanted to link some here to make them easier to find:
- The Intel Edison was a nice addition to the framebuffer code; it started headless but I got it to play Quake at 40 FPS. I wrote up another project log if you're interested in reproducing the work!
- Here is this year's kickoff video, Doom on a Raspberry Pi.
- Last year, after the PCBs came in, I got a version running on the Intel Galileo running in "Arduino mode". Here are some early signs of VGATonic life.
- A very early prototype using a CPLD breakout with no SRAM - but doing NTSC and VGA from the same clock source!
It's fun to reflect on how far this project has come! Here's where it all started, on a 4 row breadboard (complete with painstakingly placed R-2R resistor ladders!):
Good luck to everyone contending with the 2015 Hackaday Prize deadline!
