About Me

  1. I found an interesting listing on eBay, so I thought I'd share. Plus, maybe someone here can tell us more about it. Over in this thread @Cyber introduced us to the Dendy, a Famicom/NES clone from Russia or perhaps one of the other former Soviet states. The pic they showed in that thread looked like a typical console: top-loading slot, two controllers, etc. But, this eBay listing I found shows what appears to be that same Dendy Famicom clone, but built into a keyboard case, labeled "Russian-English Computer Learning Set", and packed with a cartridge that apparently also has (two flavors? of) BASIC. RETRO Dendy SUBOR KEYBOARD (Famicom) Console + full set | eBay (I should point out, I'm not the seller nor am I encouraging anyone to buy; I'm just sharing because it's interesting.) An easily programmable NES (clone) is kind of exciting. (I know Japan released a keyboard for the Famicom, but they're rare.) I wonder if the BASIC on this system can access the sound capabilities, that would actually be useful for chiptune creation. I wonder if anyone can translate the contents of the cartridge (there's a close-up picture of it, but most of it is in Cyrillic script except the word BASIC, heheh.) I assume the language education is for Russian-speakers to learn English - and not the other way? Another pic shows what appears to be a 25-pin port on the back, maybe a parallel port. I wonder what that might have been for.
