Hardware, Embedded Systems "With fond memories of educational titles like 'Granny's Garden', and less educational ones like 'Pole Position' and 'Boffin', the BBC B seemed like a worthy machine to bring back to life inside an FPGA." The Hacker News thread has links to more FPGA implementations of older home computers.

My own kids are obsessed with computers as most are, as long as it is shiny bling and plays games on the web, its a computer. They have no concept of a computer being useful that isn't connected to the web. If I showed them whats inside, total disinterest, "whatever"!

It would be interesting to see how well the Colossus and Tommy Flowers is portrayed in a movie. The UK war secrecy didn't help any. In them olden days, a mag drum was hacked together from metal drums and tape heads lying around the work shop.
