Build a Retro Microcomputer with a Parallax Propeller

Gadget Gangster put up a tutorial on Instructables to build a retro 8-bit microcomputer with a Parallax Propeller.

This Instructable will teach you how to build your own retro-style microcomputer to program, play games and music, and most importantly re-create some of the magic from the 1970’s on your own table.   You will be able to assemble this project in an afternoon, and enjoy it for months to come.   We’ll start with some a simple kit and build from there.

Gadget Gangster even ported BASIC to run on the propeller.  You can pick up Parallax Propeller products from Adafruit here!
