More Clones Coming...

Here's an interesting new clone of 80s home computers: The FPGA Arcade (not sure if that's the final name) is based on a Xilinx FPGA and will be a multi-machine clone for the Atari ST, Amiga and older 8-bit systems all on one main board.

From the blog it looks like they will be very close to production status soon, and for (hopefully) under 200 Euros that looks like a very interesting system.

It looks like there is now a whole wave of FPGA based systems coming up, since the prices for the development boards are now generally below $200 and there are now many free tools and resources available for the casual hobbyist who wants to expand into VHDL development.
