David sent in this cool AVR project called “Craft”. It uses an AVR microcontroller to make 80’s type computer graphics and music. If you just can’t wait to hear the awesome music, skip to 1:00 in the video. All the schematics and lots more pictures are on the web site.

Having successfully built a soundchip out of a microcontroller together with my friends in kryo, I wanted to tackle the greater challenge of generating a realtime video signal along with the sound. This is the result.
