Mega65 Retro Computer - Kickstarter for moulds

Post by RobertB »

Development of the Mega65, a clone of the Commodore 65, is progressing slowly but surely. Prototyping has gone on for a few years, prototype boards have been sent out to beta testers, and now a Kickstarter campaign has started to gather money to build the steel moulds (molds) for the injection-molded cases of the Mega65.

I have sent in my donation! For more information on the Mega65, go to

http://mega65.org/

or go to the page for Kickstarter donations at

To see the Mega65 discussion forum, go to

http://mega65.net (which will lead you to Forum64.de)

or on Facebook, see

Happy New Year!
