Not long after I received my much anticipated Amiga 1200 in the mail from Italy, a fellow Tokyo HackerSpace member had scheduled a trip to Hard Off in Akihabara.
You can read the back story of this project in the A1200 project blog but in summary:
My brother has been bugging me for a long time to "get back to your roots" by becoming a retro PC collecter. He has built himself a wall dedicated to C= machines of the 8-bit family, such as the C64, C128, C16, Plus4 and peripherals.
This was a 2006 capstone project for three students at ITT Technical Institute in Tucson Arizona. The project is a shallow depth submersable ROV, with RS232 communications. The team included myself and two lab partners Ron and Tom.
Ever since writing my first book (Arduino Projects to Save the World), I have been interested in building a weather station.
