Submission + - Miss 8-Bit Gaming? Revive 80s Commodore 64 Computer Using Raspberry Pi (ibtimes.co.uk)

concertina226 writes: I'm sure some of you will think it's insane to want to go backwards with technology, but retro gaming fans and supporters of old computing hardware will definitely disagree.

To that end, a group of Commodore fans are working on a new emulator with the ability to turn the Raspberry Pi £30 computer into a fully functioning Commodore 64 fresh from the 1980s.

Scott Hutter, creator of the Commodore Pi project, together with a team of developers on Github, are seeking to build a native Commodore 64 operating system that can run on Raspberry Pi.

"The goal will be to include all of the expected emulation features such as SID sound, sprites, joystick connectivity, REU access, etc. In time, even the emulation speed could be changed, as well as additional modern graphics modes," he writes on his website.
