|The Dream 6800 Home Video Computer, designed by Michael Bauer, was first publish in Electronics Australia magazine - May 1979 issue, page 82 to 89. The article spread across four issues detailing operation and construction of the project.
The Dream was a ridiculously simple hobby computer with 2K bytes of RAM that played game programs on a TV. The 1KB ROM (1024 bytes!) contained a simple interpretive programming language known as "CHIP-8", devised by Joe Weisbecker of RCA Labs. I developed a CHIP-8 interpreter to run on the Motorola 6800 processor. CHIP-8 originally ran on the RCA_COSMAC VIP board. It was amazing to see what could be done with the available memory and a "chunky graphics" display of just 64 x 32 pixels -- for example, "Dream Invaders", a crude version of Space Invaders, as adrenalin-pumping as the real thing.
Update: I've been contacted by Bob the Vries and Michael J. Bauer (the designer of the Dream 6800) who were so kind to allow me to host all their Dream6800 related stuff here, as well as providing me with scans of the Dreamer newsletter (issue 1-15). Be sure to check out Michael's own webpage on the Dream6800 at the links section of this website.
