NETMF PC Anyone?

Here’s my latest little side project…a full PC based on the FEZ Cobra w/ USB Keyboard, WiFi, SBASIC, Skewworks Apps and Full NETMF applications.

Very cool! :clap:

Wow, what is next? Windows OS running on top of netmf? :slight_smile:

If anyone is pushing the boundaries of what can be done with Gadgeteer, its you, WOW!!!

There’s a lot more to come. Next I’ll add an editor so you can create SBASIC right on the fez then FTP, Vault-Link etc :slight_smile:

@ Gus - 3.1esque is in the works for this, yes

And full MF implementation. :slight_smile: Impressive!

I have an idea for you, see these links

It doesn’t have to be this one but any old 8bit console. One with plenty of games :slight_smile:

All in good time. When Cobra II gets here I’ll connect w/ the VideoOut to a monitor and see where I can go from there.

For now…text editor time. :smiley:

Spectrum brings back some memories. :slight_smile: All those hours spent playing Elite.

I’ve uploaded the necessary code here: http://www.tinyclr.com/codeshare/entry/609

@ Skewworks - Fantastic!

@ Skewworks - You never cease to amaze me!

I’m with Gus, we need a way to quickly port a bunch of games to NETMF. :wink:

Very cool project!

Looks like I made Hack a Day. :smiley:

Congratulations!

Very cool – congrats on the HaD!

Congrats, Thom! You’re wasting your time trying to defend your choices against Hack-A-Day Arduino zealots. It never looks good. You did get in a couple good come-backs, though :smiley:

Yeah I’ve been on HaD enough to deal w the slings; mainly I’m hoping to open up a couple of minds to NETMF. Every project of mine they’ve listed has had lots of negative feedback but I hand it to the editors for continuing to list NETMF projects anyway; it seems obvious to me they’re trying to show all the options. :smiley:
