Atari is awesome!

 

Atari just shipped me this cool Nolan Bushnell era Legacy Development Kit!!! :)

I did some recent work for them and shared my admiration for the iconoclastic VCS and the Flashback consoles.

 

I haven't opened the package yet - just shook it to listen :)

 

I need to pickup the hardware to connect it along with a six switch model it's designed for; I've only got a Vader and a Junior at present but I've been wanting six switches on the console for some time and now I really have no excuse!

 

I will post pictures of my Retro Development Kit once I have that equipment; for now, here is a picture of the package as I received it from Atari last weekend - you can see it's from California and was shipped to my software company :)

Why haven't you opened it yet?!

I'm guessing so we can share the "just opened" experience via pics on atariage :)

 

Cool!

Cool!

Yes, that's it exactly! :)

 

I'm tremendously delighted and inspired to have the kit so I want to draw this out like a kid with an ice-cream bar!

 

Don't worry I won't wait till it melts; I'm storing it inside in a cool dry place, not outside on my deck where I took the picture :)

Very cool! What kind of work did you do for Atari?

 

Thanks! I will absolutely share the whole story soon as soon as I post the pics - I'm writing up a descriptive account of it now :)
