ground up diy laptop


[Chris] sent in his diy laptop. While it reminds me of the kid laptops at the toy store, it’s a nice effort. It’s got a PICAXE 18X microcontroller, 20×4 blue serial lcd, a laptop keyboard and runs his custom built language: chris++. Power comes from four AA batteries, and duct tape secures the electronics inside the wood case.

AVR game console


This is a bit reminiscent of the missing DC entry, so consider it a bonus hack. [Eric] sent in his latest project, an AVR game console. It uses a pair of ATMega168v micro-controllers, a nokia 3110 LCD, and an eeprom to store a selection of games. The interface above the console is the serial loader/charger. No word on the game source, but judging from his site, maybe he’s writing them all on his own.
