It is Friday of Spaceweek™ - and what a week.
One billionaire flew to space. 🚀 The other week another billionaire flew to space. Both following a billionaire, who … flies to space - more regularly but not personally. If reincarnation really exists, why not return to this time? Why not? 🤔
In the meantime here on Earth someone managed to get Linux running on an ESP32, and information processing (yes computers) has been supplemented with a completely new option. In addition someone heard me crying about the Tag Heuer Connected Mario Edition being sold out and just re-released the Casio F-100 - the iconic time piece Sigourney Weaver aka Ellen Ripley wore in James Cameron’s Aliens.
Since everything was so spacey this week, we decided to use this as a theme, and due to the fact that everyone and their grandma seems to be in holidays, we also dug up some 8bit projects that are not brand new no more, but you might not know yet.
We cover the first ICs in space, a Russian calculator marvel, a really cool piece of hardware for the ZX Spectrum, more hardware to probably build, more lectures to probably watch and a number of videos which include a bit more fun stuff today.
We hope you enjoy issue #09.
