Graphics and a keyboard in the works

A project log for Z80 overpowered computer

I am building a computer with a 4MHz Z80, 32KiB EEPROM, 32KiB RAM, IDE interface and UART.

Got basic graphics working; I essentially took one of the NGT20's predecessors and updated the firmware for better graphics.

More exciting : the UART keyboard!

I typed that on a home made mechanical keyboard! Nice and clicky... still am building the card that connects to the Z80 computer. I cant use the other UART as input because the graphics card uses the port. I mean, I could hack it, but... Actually I think I'm going to do that. Lol. Time to hack a graphics card and keyboard port!
