It seems like everyone is using the AVR microcontrollers these days, but you can still do cool things with PIC’s, especially if you’re willing to learn assembly language. Check out this project I made using a PIC to generate an analog RGB video signal for a small LCD display. This is my first PIC project, and the entire program was coded in assembly over the course of about two weeks. I’ll be posting the source code soon.

Well done – displaying that on a jacket lapel would make for one awesome statement of invader-chic. (Is it just me, or does the green one always look like he’s crying for help?)
