An operating system on my Arduino? Say it ain’t so!


This looks like an interesting development: Youtube user ArduinoWill claims to have managed to shoehorn an operating system onto the tiny microcontroller system, called Pyxis OS. The above demo shows it loading a text file and a bitmap image from a microsd controller. There doesn’t seem to be much information available about the project yet, however the author mentions that the code will be released once the project works more reliably. [via antipastohw]

    Hey, ArduinoWill here. Pyxis OS is a bit more than a claim and the latest video can be found here: Keep an eye out because I will be uploading a video of Pyxis OS executing compiled code for the first time this week.

    Thanks for the write-up Matt!

      Forgot to mention, that compiled code…it will be running from a uSD card not FLASH. Look for it in the next 24-48 hours!
