The Embroidered Computer is an exploration into using historic gold embroidery materials and knowledge to craft a programmable 8 bit computer. Solely built from a variety of metal threads, magnetic, glas and metal beads, and being inspired by traditional crafting routines and patterns, the piece questions the appearance of current digital and electronic technologies surrounding us, as well as our interaction with them.

8bit Game Remakes: Wizball


Most remakes of old 1980s 8bit games suck, but there are a few exceptionally good ones.

This Wizball remake managed to capture the essence and the spirit of the original C64 version and transitioned it well into the new century. It's hypnotic and psychedelic, and the sound and music (revolutionary back then in the original version) have been carefully updated and are amazing.

I played this a lot a few years ago (or rather, quite a long time ago, certainly before i joined d*), I think I managed to beat it; afair it works on GNU/Linux with WINE.

Musical discovery of the week: Kubbi. They're making the kind of 8-bit music you remember hearing while playing the Nintendo NES. By blending 8-bit tracks and modern instruments, it fills the same musical gaps we do when recalling our favorite tunes. #music #8bit #electronica

 
Pixel art on a particular 80s 8bit machine:

To all artists: even if you're not so technical, can you figure out what the properties/limitations of this machine were?

To all techies and retro computing specialists: please don't spoil! :-]
