Green C.H.I.P.s

Posted by Next Thing Co. (Creator)


Kernel Hackers!!! September means you get your Alpha C.H.I.P.s!.  Shipping Alpha C.H.I.P.s means we need our KHB ADDRESS CONFIRMATIONS.  If we owe you an Alpha C.H.I.P., you will receive an email to confirm your address through BackerKit. Keep an eye on your inboxes! (and if you haven't been through BackerKit yet, now would be a great time)


While walking around the block to get coffee one day, we chanced upon a relic. Thrown away and forgotten.

One man's trash. Now our pleasure to treasure.

An Apple /// monitor!!! But will it work with C.H.I.P.? (hint: yes! see the video!)

C.H.I.P.'s composite video output means it can be used to with countless old devices.  So hold onto your old tube monitors and televisions C.H.I.P.sters! Old tech is about to get new life!

      Hi Chipsters
      I have not received my Kernel Hacker chip yet. Could you look into this?

      Hi there,

      I've got my alpha Chip - thanks! I expected to be able to connect via USB and see it enumerate as a serial device, however that's now happening. What should I expect this to be enumerating up as out of the box?

      Thanks, Alex

      I'm absolutely flabbergasted that someone would not hold on to this monitor! I have a Zenith monitor (ZVM-121) that I'd love to get repaired and working again.

      I'm planning in using a Zenith monitor (third party version of the Apple), I'm hoping there is a way to disable the color burst though.

      Now, can you run an Apple 2 emulator on the CHIP? That would be awesome.
