no not this one, this one is a Basic 8 bit computer- you need to be looking at a PI or Arduino or the Android dongle thingy, I have also stumbled upon a competitor to the PI already!

I saw this on FB, great work mate!

Its actually the kind of thing I wouldn't mind dabbling with as I have made loads of games in BASIC over the years.

now I have FIGkeys 1.1 keyboard interface, I have rebuilt my FIGnition...



It is a proper PBC interface, it has superseded my MK 1 sheild, its nice and quick too.
