High school student (just graduated) Jack Eisenmann built a fully-functional 8-bit computer from scratch, and called it the DUO Adept. This device uses “100 chips connected by a lot of wiring, 256 bytes of RAM and 64KB of memory, running an OS that utilizes a whopping 263 lines of code.” Video after the break.

It’s not as flashy as Steve Chamberlin’s homebrew 8-but computer – yes, that is a big, plastic, Tupperware-like container the computer is sitting in, and the old keyboard and TV the machine is using doesn’t help pretty it up, either – but its cheap looks beguile the amount of work that went into it.
