We'd love to get to know you better. Take a moment to say hi to the community in the comments.
Hello everyone! I'm Creui, I've been a hobbyist in programming since I was around 14. I'm now 18 and taking up information systems! My interest for these kind of electronics (ICs, circuits, etc.) started when ben eater and jdh (underrated channel btw) kept popping up in my youtube recommendations. The release of CRUMB made it so much more fun and easier to delve into this topic.
Now I have a goal of making an actual computer from scratch, and starting with little knowledge about electronic engineering and embedded systems, then ending with a good enough understanding to supplement my other goal of replicating each minecraft version rd-131648 to the latest using C OpenGl.
p.s. can't wait for CRUMB 2, I want that sweet sweet 6502 ben eater printed "hello, world" with lol
Great to have you onboard, I’m working hard… it’s just going to take me a while as I’m on my own ☺️
Hi gang, my name's Chris, I've been writing code since my grandpa put a computer in front of me at the age of 6, and now I'm a professional software person. Dabbling in electronics is a very new hobby of mine -- when I came across Ben Eater's series of videos building a computer out of bits and bobs, I decided to treat myself for Christmas and get his Hello World kit based on the 6502 microprocessor. I've built it (after struggling a lot with the wire-stripping part), and, well, now I need to figure out something original to do with it!
I intend to use CRUMB to prototype new and interesting applications. Please let me know if there is a built circuit out there I can load as a starting point, or else I shall be forced to build it myself! Also reach out if you have any interesting ideas for projects for this computer, I'm kinda running dry :/
Hello, my name is Rommel, and I work in the electronics industry. I've designed discrete power amplifiers in the past (class AB). I've always enjoyed dabbling with electronics, from analog to digital, and recently have started studying about embedded systems and internet of things.
😀Hi all! My name is Daifeng, and I am a Chinese college student majoring in Robotics. I started to play circuitry years ago but still a beginner I think I am. This game or software/simulator is great, helpful with those hobbyist and beginner like me, I saw its video on BiliBili which might be regarded as Chinese YouTube. Looking for more features and functions in future updates!
A small suggestion that it would be much much better if there is Chinese language support for this game because I saw a lot of Chinese players or students putting their demands on Steam and BiliBili (Chinese YouTube), and I am willing to help with the translation.
Hey Everyone, I'm Samuel or Sam. Currently working on getting my Electrical Engineering degree and have been growing an interest in Electronic design and Embedded Systems. Came across CRUMB through Reddit and it has been exactly what I have been looking for throughout my college courses and is exactly the thing my High School teachers are looking for. Outside of school love learning all things software and hardware and seeing what others have created using physical hardware. Now that University is going on break for the semester looking forward to getting a change to dive into what is all possible with CRUMB and expanding my skills with Electronics and Design.
Pleasure to hear from you!
Hello, I started in electronics when I was around 10 years old. I got a Computer Engineering degree and have been working for a while. I've toyed with putting together a "Maker's Group" of some kind at a local library but life keeps interfering. I think CRUMB is a great tool that could be part of this project. I think there may be some other things to include as well.
There is a local library in a nearby town that (in the past) had single board computers of some flavor that you could check out and work with, perhaps in their lab. I didn't need that since I have my own stuff and also things at work to "play" with.
I'm a bit late to this but I'm Dan, had some basic instruction while getting my GED. Did a year of digital electronics in class for a year, but this was in 1999 / 2000, long ago. I love software and hardware development and my software skills are in C# primarily and some 6502. I look forward to the future with CRUMB as it's a great teaching/testing aid without having to spend tons on components. If there is DLC, I'll buy it. :-)
Welcome to the party 👊🏻
I've been a lover of programming since I was 14, and so when I learned of Arduinos and RPis, I had to have a few. My favourite thing of programming is being able to watch a few lines of code make something wonderful, so being able to see this physically as opposed to in a game, or on a website, was amazing.
I haven't dabbled too far into circuitry, so some uses of ICs and such, I'm not too familiar with. I did very basic things like setting up light strips around my house, like around my ceiling, under furniture, etc and getting them working through Alexa is about as far as I ever went. It's hard to find a certain project I will want to do and then buy the parts for them, and I've never just splurged and bought a lot of ICs to test with. This simulator gives me the ability to keep learning without having to purchase ICs, more components, jumper cables, etc
I am currently hoping to replicate BenEater's 8 bit computer within this sim, as I think a lot of people are trying to do. I've watched the series a couple times on Youtube, but without actually testing and doing it myself, you can only retain so much information.
Best of luck, I'm sure you'll see me in this forum asking questions or suggesting updates, etc. Cheers
Became interested in electronics in my teens. I built simple kits from Radio Shack and then graduated into advanced kits. The life changer was when I built a Heathkit H-89 computer from a kit. This involved actually soldering the components onto the bare circuit boards. I learned a lot about electronics but not the 8088 microprocessor. Still, this drove me into the computer field where I’ve been every since. When I came across Ben Eater’s 8-Bit computer on a breadboard on YouTube a few years ago, I knew I had to build it, and I did. Really learned the inner workings of a CPU. I‘ve been hooked on building circuits every since as a hobby. Have done a good bit of work with microcontrollers as well. Really looking forward to seeing CRUMB grow and provide additional features. It’s already an amazing app.
I learned electronics when my guitar amp broke many years ago and couldn't afford to get it looked at or sorted.
I've come to realize over the years that a circuit board on an amp or a tv etc, are pretty much the same so have been fixing and figuring things out on my self.
I've used breadboards before, but it's sometimes just the hassle of getting all the bits out and organized etc but this software is going to solve that problem.
It's also going to make it more accessible to everyone.
Hobbyist in electronics. This software looks nice and easy to use. Now days the circuit making is time consuming and many breadboard is used. And also this software will make it easier to test more circuit without physically taking all parts from the breadboard everytime I wanna build a new.
Hi all, I've been Interested in electronics since being a teenager in the 80's, built plenty of kits bought from Maplin's, did a microelectronics course after leaving school and messed around with Arduino and Raspberry Pi but never really understood the basics of electronics and tended to do things programmatically and programming became my full time job, I have a few published games under my belt and I'm still programming today, no doubt some of you have played my games from the early 8 Bit era C64 & Atari to pub fruit machines and on-line slots.
I've been following the development of CRUMB for a while now, and I've got to say it looks brilliant, can't wait to get my hands on it and have a play, I might finally get to build a few projects of my own without that horrible burning smell we all know and dread.
…magic smoke😉🤣 I think we all know…
