What is the BASIC Engine?
By Thom Holwerda on 2018-08-02 22:48:05

The BASIC Engine is a very low-cost single-board home computer with advanced 2D color graphics and sound capabilities, roughly comparable to late-1980s or early-1990s computers and video game consoles. It can be built at home without special skills or tools and using readily available components for under 10 Euros in parts, or mass-produced for even less.

What a fascinating little device, and a great idea to boot - BASIC is a great programming language to use as first steps into programming.
