Mega65 Retro Computer - Kickstarter for moulds

Post by rbernardo »

Development of the Mega65, a clone of the Commodore 65, is progressing slowly but surely. Prototyping has gone on for a few years, prototype boards have been sent out to beta testers, and now a Kickstarter campaign has started to gather money to build the steel moulds (molds) for the injection-molded cases of the Mega65.

I have sent in my donation! For more information on the Mega65, go to

http://mega65.org/

or go to the page for Kickstarter donations at

Goal reached! Now at over 69,000 Euros of the 66,000 required.

Mega65 developer Paul Gardner-Stephen talks about the new, sudden influx of money (in an article printed just before the crowdfunding goal was reached) and the plans for making the moulds at
