Pete Brown’s tutorial on creating his ‘Sixty4Racer’ game for the PIX-6T4

In a great follow-up to his previous article on assembling the PIX-6T4, Pete Brown puts the console’s rapid game development concept to the test and whips up a racing game in one evening.  Pete does a fantastic job at explaining the design process step-by-step, starting from the game concept all the way to creating  a standalone game ‘cartridge’ for all of us to enjoy. Awesome job Pete and thanks for sharing this excellent tutorial.

Cheers,

-Fabien.

It’s been a while since I’ve last posted here… We have been busy over the past few weeks getting our new little startup company off the ground and setting up a marketplace for the PIX-6T4, our very first product 🙂

The PIX-6T4 is a complete, yet simple, game console designed to teach budding Hackers and Makers about digital electronics and programming in a fun way. Head over to the PIX-6T4 site to check out the schematics, the source code, the docs, and of course, the step-by-step video tutorial on assembling the kit:

The PIX-6T4 is an entirely Open Source and Open Hardware kit, so you’re free to hack it to your heart’s content or use it as a base for your projects. Be sure to show us what you build with it and we’ll feature your creations and contributions.

Have fun!

Cheers,

-Fabien.
