RetroWiz AVR

category: offtopic [glöplog]
 
Here is our AVR project we are working since late 2011.
It is something like UZEBOX. But with another philosophy.
It is based on Jerry´s AVGA platform.
(He is also behind all RetroWiz; hardware, HW designer).
I am WWW and FORUM admin, enclosure designer.
We call our platform RetroWiz. (from "Retrocomputer Wizard" or "Retrogaming Wizard").

Our webpage will be here:

Our forum is online (since 12.nov.2012):

Why develop this when you can get a vastly-superior Gameduino or an STM4F ARM devboard for little money. A DIY project to have fun: sure! but I'm rather pessimistic about your business opportunities.
