In the News "We all know about the gadgets that get showered with constant praise - the icons, the segment leaders, and the game changers. Tech history will never forget the Altair 8800, the Walkman, the BlackBerry, and the iPhone. But people do forget - and quickly - about the devices that failed to change the world: the great ideas doomed by mediocre execution, the gadgets that arrived before the market was really ready, or the technologies that found their stride just as the world was pivoting to something else." I was a heavy user of BeOS, Zip drives, and MiniDisc (I was an MD user up until about 2 years ago). I'm starting to see a pattern here.

I'm sure most readers of this site are aware of a new game coming out similar to Omega called 0x10c.

There is a fictional CPU on it that players will have to program to control their ship.

The game isn't out yet but because the CPU specs are someone already created an LLVM backend that targets the CPU. Someone created a TETRIS clone using C++, the LLVM backend and it is playable in a Javascript emulator.

Emulator loaded with binary code:
