  • The Z80 Retro Badge

    So, my badge this year was inspired by the ongoing chip shortage. Rather than try and find modern chips, I decided to go old school. I present the Z80 Retro Badge by Uberfoo Heavy Industries.
    This is a fully function 8bit microcomputer model after so of the first generation of personal microcomputers.
    The plan is to have CP/M 2.2 running on this so it will be able to run original Z80 software including some old text adventure games like the Zork series.
    4x addressable RGB LEDs are included for requisite blinkyness. An expansion port opens up possibilities for adding additional hardware in the future.
    The badge will be available from Hacker Warehouse during DEF CON for $130.

          Garrett needs to take my money, then. This is one of the most comfortable CPUs ever created. Those powerful block moves and that swap-all-the-registers opcode were the best.

              Yes I was one of the first folks in line & they never even had it for sale, because they had not received it on Thursday. It was listed on the board too

            I asked about this at the Hackerboxes booth and they said it needs to be ordered online. I can't find it on the Hackerboxes site. :( Anyone know where to look? TIA

              My sincerest apologies to everyone. In addition to a couple of manufacturing defects we had to rework which put us in a huge time crunch, we discovered a design flaw in our power supply that prevented almost all the badges from booting up correctly. Because these problems, we decide not to sell our badge yet. We absolutely do not want to sell an inferior product.
              We plan to immediately work on a redesign the power supply and we will keep everybody posted here and all of the other channels we've advertised through of the progress and we will try and make online sales to those who want one. In addition we plan to sell the badge at next year's DEF CON and we may have another exciting new badge from our team too.
              Again, we're very very sorry about this and hope to make it up to everybody in the very near future.
