If you’re interested in building your own brand new Commodore 64 computer, you might be interested in the new video released this month on the Retro Recipes YouTube channel. The build will walk you through the process of using the new Commodore 64 keycaps, which were created thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign and matched with the new motherboard and case.
The Commodore 64, also known as the Sea 64, is an 8bit home computer first introduced back in January 1982 by Commodore International. It was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the bestselling computer model of all time, with between 12.5 million and 17 million units sold by independent estimates.
Unfortunately, the Commodore 64 was discontinued in April 1994, approximately 28 years ago. But now you can build your own brand new Commodore 64 using parts available from third party vendors.
Build a Commodore 64.
The Commodore 64 was discontinued in 1994 and since then it has been impossible to find a 100% new “real” (nonemulation) replacement. Thanks to the sponsorship of http://PCBWay.com – great printed circuit boards from $5! – let’s try to build the world’s first brand new C64/C64C by experimenting with the new EVO64 and Ultimate 64 motherboard, as well as new keycaps from the recent Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign and many other modern replacements for 6510/6502 processor, power supply, PLA, CIA, SID chips, VICII chip and more!”
