After getting some things from the basement for my computer, I gazed forlornly at my well-used 2600. I remember reading about a perhifrial called the compumate, which converted the 2600 from a video game console into a weak but useful computer. That got my wheels turning, and left me wondering, has anybody ever thought about making a homebrew compumate? And that is the question/discussion I cannot get out of my head.

I'd be interested in a homebrew compumate. I have a little experience in hardware design, but I have always been an amateur.

good to know I'm not the only one! It could be done, perhaps with enhancements like better keyboard, sd card support, etc.
