We’re excited to be bringing the MOnSter 6502 out to Maker Faire New York for its east coast debut. Maker Faire is September 23 and 24 at the New York Hall of Science. See how microcontrollers and computers work at the most basic level! We built a functional transistor-scale model of the famous 6502 microprocessor. … Continue reading MOnSter 6502 at Maker Faire NY
We’re bringing the MOnSter 6502 to the Vintage Computer Festival this weekend, August 5-6 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. VCF West is for everyone! Computer geeks, families/children, students, collectors, IT professionals, curious onlookers…
The new version of the #MOnSter6502 is up and running! pic.twitter.com/Mlz3Tidje2 — Evil Mad Scientist (@EMSL) June 16, 2017 The second revision of the MOnSter 6502 is here, working, and blinkier than ever with nearly twice as many LEDs!
We’ve been working on the MOnSter 6502 project for quite some time. We first introduced it last year, and since then we have brought it up to the stage of successfully running programs in assembly, BASIC, and Forth. We have taken this opportunity before Maker Faire to put together an introductory video for the project.
We’ll be at this year’s Bay Area Maker Faire, May 19-21 with Tube Time and the MOnSter 6502 project. We’ll hope to see you there!
Our collaborator Eric Schlaepfer has been extremely hard at work this year, designing a truly monstrous follow up to our giant-scale dis-integrated 555 and 741 circuits. This is the MOnSter 6502: a transistor-scale replica of the famous MOS 6502 microprocessor, the processor found at the heart of influential early computer systems such as the Apple … Continue reading Introducing the MOnSter 6502
For the past couple of years we have been working towards a public launch of the MOnSter 6502, our working transistor-scale replica of the famous MOS 6502 microprocessor. One of the biggest pieces of the puzzle has been how to present it in such a way that shows off its beauty but also lets you … Continue reading MOnSter in a box
Today we are pleased to announce the release of two new soldering kits: the 555SE discrete 555 timer and the 741SE discrete op-amp. Both of these new kits are surface mount soldering kits — our first surface mount soldering kits — and we think that you’re going to love them. You might be familiar with … Continue reading The 555SE and 741SE surface-mount soldering kits
It has been reported that Maker Media is shutting down and that Maker Faire is at its end. Evil Mad Scientist has its roots in Maker Faire, and has been presenting there from the very beginning, so it seems fitting to look back at our Maker Faire projects now. For the very first event in … Continue reading Looking back at Maker Faire
