Computer art with an Amiga

When we think of computer art, we usually associate it with highly detailed 3D computer renderings and animations. But there’s also a form of computer art that is more tangible, that creates actual sculptures and paintings that have been designed with a computer. A fine example of this kind of art form is the work […]

The C64 drum machine

That the Commodore 64 had one of the best sound chips of its era, is a known fact, making it (and its SID chip) a great tool to play electronic music. But what’s less known is that the C64 also could serve as one hell of a drum machine/computer. Back in 1985, Compware released the […]

The C64 as a medical aid

Back in the 80s Commodore C64s were making their way not only into the households, they were also being utilized more and more in the medical profession. One such example is the use of the C64 as a bio feedback device. The company Schippers-Medizintechnik built a special bio feedback device that was connected to the […]

C64Month competition answers

Last month I held the C64Month competition right here on the MOS6502-site.  It seems the quiz was a bit harder than expected with messages arriving from my retro friends on Twitter and Google+ that they found 8, 9, 10 answers but not more.  I guess you’re all wondering what the correct answers were then to […]

No Commodore 64, No CAPTCHA

No Commodore 64, No CAPTCHA

Technology we take for granted today, might not have come to be if Commodore hadn’t released their ‘computers for the masses, not the classes’. One such example is that of the CAPTCHA, the de-facto standard for making sure spambots don’t plant their commercial messages on your website. Luis von Ahn’s parents had a candy factory […]

Happy 64th birthday Jean Michel Jarre!

Today is Jean Michel Jarre’s 64th birthday. He sure is one of my heroes and has been my favorite composer since, well, as far as I can remember. It was my aunt who was very much into electronic music and got me my first Jean Michel Jarre record. It was for me a revelation: the […]

How I started my Commodore collection

Last month I was asked by the excellent Retro Games Collector if I wanted to be featured on their “Show Us Your Collection” series.  In these articles, they interview a collector of retro games, consoles, computers etc. on how they started their collection and what turned them to collecting vintage electronics in the first place. Needless to say I was flattered by […]

August 1982, the world gets to buy the C64

January 1982 is a date that’s written in bold in computing history books as it was then that the C64 was first shown to the world at the Vegas CES. With all the buzz about this new awesome machine that Commodore was going to release, and this was just shortly after the success of the […]

The London 2012 Olympics

Today the London 2012 Olympics start. Now I am not that much of sports fan, but I do enjoy playing sports games on my C64 and hence I remember all those classic Olympic themed games like Epyx’ Summer Games and Konami’s Track and Field. The latter took most of my pocket money at the arcades […]
