Old + New = Awesome

Anyone remember the Commodore 64? It was a the powerful successor to the popular Vic 20, came out in 1982, and was the best-selling single computer model of all time. It brought personal computing to millions of households.

And after 25 years of Moore’s Law, a fan married the old tech of his Commodore 64 with the new tech of a pair of virtual reality goggles and created something new: 8-bit VR. He even wrote his own adventure game, Street Defender.

While 8-bit VR is rather useless, the fact that Jim_64 did this is indeed awesome. See it here.
