  1. For a low production item, price is decent I guess. In a way I'm glad you don't have Android working at this time, so I don't have to decide how much I want one. Looks like a neat idea and worked out good. If you got 2 together, you could do a slow motion Rock'em Sock'em R.O.B.ots with them.
  2. I'm following along, and subscribed as well.
  3. This is what I did, I wonder if the "test" is just synched flashes that the LED shows, does it flash with any code, I forget. I need to review my video. It looks like the LED goes on when waiting, and off/flickering when receiving? Also, Reset looks like it goes all the way to top right, then centers at the top.
  4. I remember I did a "reset" code. From sketchy memory it went all the way up and to one side then all the way down to the other, hmm, let me look at my documents.
  5. LOL, or LLOL, literally laughed out loud! Good luck with that!
  6. OK, sounds promising. I assume the market will be small, but that would depend on the price as well. You could do things like make the ROB run from a battery eliminator, sitting up on a shelf with his glasses on, (powered from same source would be cool) 24x7. Then pull out your phone and have him turn towards guests or something. OOOOHHHH, even better, I got it! "Alexa, tell ROB to open arms"
  7. I wonder if a more passive device would be possible since you worked out how to send the signals, now if there was a way to detect them on a modern display. It should be possible since you can actually "see" them on playback.
  8. OK, cool, I figured it would be like that. Projected price? Kit, or plans, 3D print file? Also, Android!!!
  9. So the hardware glasses actually emit the flashed/code to the ROB, correct? Are they bluetoothed to the device playing the game or what? Or do they pickup the screen flashed, and rebroadcast it to the ROB?
  10. Very interesting, I am basically never on this anymore, but I am still subscribed to this thread, and love seeing updates.

  12. With my hardware hack I'm doing on a 4 switch to make a button controller toggle all the switches, maybe I'll put it in the 2800 instead. I need to open it up and see how different it is. To me a 2600 is useless withought actual front switches for difficulty and color/bw. Several great games like Phasor Patrol use them in game.
  13. Oh well, my memory isn't great I guess... http://atariage.com/forums/topic/159046-sears-video-arcade-ii/ So I HAVE seen one before!
  14. I was browsing a semi local "The Exchange" and was hoping something odd was there I could grab. I ended up blowing $100. $60 on a used copy of the 30 blu-ray disc box set of Star Trek with TOS 1-3 and TAS 1 and the first 6 movies. (this has the funky new special effects that you can toggle on and off!) And for $40 I got a Sears Video Arcade II. It has power brick and 2 controllers. I haven't even looked at it yet, or tested it. I figured $40 for one with sticks was good, I have never seen one in person, not even seen a listing for one. It has the "Made in U.S.A." label on the bottom, that is nice as well. Now I need to read up on them! Is it safe to assume they can use "normal" sticks and paddles?
  15. Maybe come spring I will clear out basement some more and organize/inventory/photo the collection and go from there.
