2013 Retrochallenge Summer Event – Initial Post

For my second Retrochallenge, I will be making the monumental mistake of undertaking two endeavors.

  1. Learn conversational Italian – using an Atari 400 computer, 410 cassette drive, and the Atari CX4125 software package. I will deem it a success if I can get the programs to run and complete the 5 cassette tape course.
  2. Interface a Nintendo Wii nunchuck controller to an Apple IIe via Arduino. It’ll be a success if I can control the helicopter in Dan Gorlin’s classic game Choplifter by raising, lowering, rotating, and tilting the controller.
