Do you know the feeling, when someone blocks you on Twitter because of a factual, critical tweet, but then asks you to write about their project? No? Neither do we. 🙄
That's why we're happy to see that Bernardo Kastrup is heavily promoting his 8-bit project Agon Light, and of course we don't want to deprive you of this stroke of genius.
If you take a look at the 8-bit box, you can't help but speak in superlatives. Therefore, we'd better quote the creator Bernardo himself at this point, so as not to possibly make any mistake: The fastest and cheapest 8-bit microcomputer ever made, by a large margin. Basta! ⚠️
The design of the machine is of course absolutely flawless, adequate and exemplary, it can be programmed directly in C, and both hardware and software are open source. If you are seriously looking for a fast 8-bit solution in 2022, you will definitely find it here. If you just want to have some not so serious fun, you will also find ... lets say - one or the other appropriate alternative.
A great project with only one or two drops of bitterness. But: It’s rare, that all good things come together, right? Take a look and decide for yourself.
