If you want the print ready package
Today it was father’s day and I wanted to make something special for my dad.
Back in the 80’s my dad got the Oric II and he still got it (and operational).
It was also my first computer, so after some searching I found a Oric 1 model that I could use for this.
Load that model in to ThinkerCad and a Raspberry Pi zero model, just for size’s.
If you want to tinker more:
Added retropie installed the Oric emulator and added the roms.
Download link: Oric Atoms. (oops include the psd.. systembackground.png is a psd)
Location of the themes: /etc/emulationstation/themes/(nes-mini)
My dad/mom loved The Oric 1 mini 😀
My dad is a Ham Radio/TV amateur and he asked if i could write a better version of his version Test card/screen program that he found on the internet.
|http://home.worldonline.nl/~peterdb/testcard/||Site is offline|
My version is almost a one 2 one copy of Peter his program the only different aspect is: custom screen options.
My dad complains that after he upgrade his video card he could get Peter’s version working correct.
So i looked at the application and told my dad that i could code that in one day and make it better.
I took this challenge because i written some code for custom screen options before.
My version got all basic functions that peter’s version got i left out the RGB options because otherwise i couldn’t make the dead line of one day 😀
Download: Dropbox download. Testscreen app
Source code : Github
Some time back i tried the hole Augmented Reality thing and now that Pokemon Go is so popular
I remembered this project that i did below is a video showing a demo of the project that i did:
If you enable your Webcam in this flash app you can try it your self.
The X-wing will rotated on the Code and if you move it it will follow your movement.
This code is used to display the xwing print it out or display it on your tablet or phone
Place it so the webcam can see the code
Here is a construct of my new Half Life² loader.
I bought a Rfid reader and now i want to simulate the arcade feeling more.
In later clips you will see the custom player menu´s weapon shop item shop etc.
This clip shows the possible way´s to save or load the game.
Will add a option for dual screens so you can have a marquee effect:
show loading maps have player info etc…
this app/loader will give you the beste Half life² survivor arcade experience that you can have on pc.
