“Retro-minimalist homebrew game console”

Ladyada writes on ladyada’s ranting:

The UzeBox the coolest thing I’ve seen in a really really long time, a full tile-based gaming system built on a Atmega644 + AD725 (which does all the nasty colorburst stuff). Ive spent some time with the AD725 but at the time I was using an Atmega16 and didn’t get nearly as far – pretty much just colorbars.
