The BASIC Engine is a very low-cost single-board home computer with advanced 2D color graphics and sound capabilities, roughly comparable to late-1980s or early-1990s computers and video game consoles. It can be built at home without special skills or tools and using readily available components for under 10 Euros in parts, or mass-produced for even less.
What a fascinating little device, and a great idea to boot – BASIC is a great programming language to use as first steps into programming.
How hard would it be to port Comal to this machine?
Honestly, BASIC was a poor choice.
I’m thinking right now about what’d be involved in creating an INTERCAL Machine…
