Wow, this is a blast from the past. I designed the original HappyCart with a friend of mine back in 1998, and did a refreshed version by myself in 1999. Only a couple of the latter versions exist out in the wild, but I still have a bunch of blank PC boards. I don't even have a populated one in my possession anymore.
I released the hardware design several years back - it's on GitHub. Link via http://www.tangentau...nics/happycart/

Holy necro bump batman! That's pretty awesome you designed these all those years ago. How did you find this after all these years? I know, the search button. Welcome to (back to?) AtariAge...
You got it - I just randomly searched to see if there were any hits, and that was the only one. I used to get a ton of random emails about that project back in the day, so people were aware of it by name at least. I wish I had pushed on with the project and actually produced some units for people, but real life and other projects got in the way of that.
As far as I know the only person who has one that I do not know personally is Chad Schell, the guy who designed the CuttleCart (aka SuperDuperCharger) around the same time period. I believe I helped him when he was just learning VHDL code to make his cart. He sent me a Cuttle Cart as a "thank you" for the help and I sent him a HappyCart (it may just have been a PCB with parts, I can't recall). Come to think of it, I never even fired up that Cuttle Cart - it would be fun to unearth it and try it out!
