A quick little project

Only thing missing is the keyboard, though I threw some one-liners at it through the USB port, which shows up as a serial interface. This is a single-board computer that boots to a BASIC prompt, like the 8-bitters of ~40 years ago. It’s built around a Raspberry Pi Pico, produces VGA video output, and has an SD-card slot for program storage and a PS/2 keyboard jack. It’s a PicoMiteVGA implementation that I knocked together fairly quickly and sent out for manufacturing.

I have parts to build four more. They might show up on Tindie, once I verify that the keyboard input works. The KiCad files are over here.
