Dedicated Machine to run SmileBASIC?

  • #1 ✎ 206 Shelly It might sound like a stretch, but it has actually been done in the past (Wang 2200). How would it work?: We would microcode a CPU so that it would take the BASIC instructions, and execute them. We could also run it at a higher level (such as assembly), but that would result in slower execution times. Is it feasible?: Maybe. The computer would definitely run at a lower clock speed than the 3ds, but it would also use the clock cycles FAR more efficiently. Its hard to tell. Posted Edited by Shelly

    hasn't this already happened? oh wait that was just a raspberry pi with SB, a screen and a keyboard, so it wasn't technically built for SB, but it's included with it.

    The Pasocom Mini exists.
    There's even an extra thread on the Pasocom Mini.
