1) easy.

2) simple.

3) homemade.

4) portable.

5) pocket size PC.

Old PCs. i am wondering about that how to run the shirink one
from Old PC and run it out.

But how ?

Step 1: Old Things

The monitor in 1970 mostly like 50 x 50 x 70 cm,

and the Apple ][ is mostly like 10 x 50 x 85 cm.

so, i gotta shrink it into 0.5 x 2.5 x 4.2 cm.

ie, i could use that arduino which just is "nano" then !

Step 2: Materils

1) arduino nano x 1

2) USB cable x 1

3) mini monitor x 1

4) AAA batt. x 2

Step 3: Prototype With UNO

1) first i install arduino into my RPi3.

2) and i install Tiny BASIC into the UNO with cable.

3) operating BASIC via COM with USB cable.

Step 4: Install BASIC Form Arduino IDE

1) boot from RPi3.

2) connect arduino with usb cable.

3) install TinyBasic v0.14 .

4) operate BASIC from arduino from IDE COM remotely.

5)write a program like Apple ][ .

CODE:

10 for i = 1 to 6

20 print "HELLO WORLD"

30 next i

40 end

Step 5: CODE:

Step 6: Test Run

0) take RPi3 apart.

1) RUN putty form a distance notebook.

2) open the nano(TinyBASIC) with serial COM3 (in my case).

3) it will responses HELLO and TinyBasic Plus v0.14 and free memory on chip.

4) write a BASIC read from my solar panel !!

Step 7: DONE !

i write a BASIC program to read my solar panel !!

you can write yours.(sorry for the solar voltage photo which was shot indoor)

ps : you can use the "ESAVE" command to save your program into the

EEPROM on your chip, and no mouse keyboard needed that boot and run !

( it will boot and read voltage automatically without keyboard in my case)

HAVE FUN !!

    I dont get it. What is the monitor for. You have no instruction on interfacing that old thing

    great ! take this.

    there are 2 AAA batt. under the tiny keyboard !

    [this case can be open (in my case) really ! ]

    I like your idea, but this instructable seems more like a showcase of your creation, and not a "how-to" guide. You could maybe try designing a nice little case that looks like one of these old computers.
