Thursday, August 12, 2010, 05:45 PMI'm now really making progress on the laserharp project.
That's because it's almost time to present the laserharp at some retrocomputing shows, so I'm anxious to finish it in time!!
Here a small video showing the modifications I made to a ZX Spectrum +2B .. poor speccy!
Thursday, July 8, 2010, 11:20 AMI'm building 50 more, and 10 are ready.
So get one at eBay:
DivIDE interface with 512MB CF card and CF adapter
DivIDE interface without 512MB CF card (but with CF adapter)
Thursday, July 8, 2010, 11:16 AMI'm doing well on the Laserharp, allthough there is a lot more 'finetuning' todo, like making the sensors more sensible to the green laser light (reflection) only.
But anyway, I've made a short nice video of the current status.
Thursday, April 15, 2010, 06:44 PMI found a nice lcd display on eBay, with 2 composite video inputs, and a 12V power connector.
No remote, no buttons, simply give it 12V, and feed a video signal:
It's only 3.5" in diagonal, but the resolution is 640x480, and the colors are very good!
And the best thing: it only costs less then 21 euro!
Here's a YouTube video I made, where I put the lcd in the place of the +2B's cassette recorder:
Search for: "3.5" TFT Color LCD Car Reverse Monitor Aluminum panel" on eBay (worldwide, because it's sold from Hong Kong).
Sunday, April 4, 2010, 06:12 PMSomeone flashed his DivIDE to ESXDOS, and asked me how to get back to FATWare.
So I got my ESXDOS rom from the shelve, swapped it with my +DivIDE rom, and checked it out.
It's not that hard:
1. Get the FATWare flasher from somewhere
2. Put it on your (FAT formatted) CF card
3. Start ESXDOS with that CF card
4. Use: .TAPEIN FATWAR~1.TAP
5. Use: LOAD ""
This will load the flasher program, so you can flash FATWare again.
~ = extended mode symbol shift A.
Your filename of the flasher may be different when you use another flasher .TAP file (e.g. the 128K versions from Velesoft).
