Description

Maker Faire 2007 featured Joe Grand who is a retro gaming guy.  He's a home brew game developer and he was too cheap to buy a DVD player.  Yep.  You know exactly where this one is going.  He actually modified an ATARI 2600 with some ram and added a CD-ROM.  Okay, it took more then that but you will have to hear the rest from him.  He also hacks into the Flashback 2.  Check out Joe Grand from Maker Faire 2007.

    I llove to hearabout stuff like this.  I find it fascinating what people can accomplish when motivated.  Is there a way for the non technical but very interested observer to ever purchase some of these mods?  I would be the talk of my neighborhood if i had an Atari DVD player:)
