Ben Heck building an Apple-1 From Scratch


Ben Heckendorn’s latest video series is now covering the building of an Apple-1 computer from scratch.  The Apple-1 was Steve Wozniak’s first commercially available computer and was sold initially by Steve Jobs through The Byte Shop in Mountain View, California.  Ben Heckendorn is famous for his hacks of vintage and modern gaming and computing platforms.  His videos over the past few years have come to represent the leading edge of hacks for these platforms.

The Apple-1 shown by Ben in his video is built on a relatively small board with significantly lower number of chips compared to an original Apple-1.  However, this small replica has 32K of RAM while the original had 4K.
