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.

Wonderful, maybe 1 more incentive to buy an Android.

Given that the ARM chip was first emulated at the logic level on a Beeb, there is a wonderful irony there.

If you had the original Basic code model of the ARM chip, you could run it on a Beebdroid.

And you are right, it was the best ever 8bit PC, you could do Forth, BCPL, Lisp, besides the excellent Basic. Plus it gave us the TV show for which it was built.
