The innards of that "power supply" are familiar, I'm sure we've had a thread on this machine here on Stardot. (Not that I can find it at the moment...)

Perhaps a little OT, but the automatic pneumatic non-destructive linear book scanner shown here is worth a look:
BookScanner.png
See a hardware prototype of an automatic, non-destructive book scanner. The machine turns pages automatically, and captures high-resolution images of each page. It was developed in 20% time, and built in the Google Workshops.

There will be a live demo and a short technical presentation, describing the design process.

Dany Qumsiyeh is an engineer on the Google Books team
See also two short amateur videos of the machine in action:
Google's early linear book scanner prototype (part 1 of 2)
Google's early linear book scanner prototype (part 2 of 2)

and an earlier prototype (one of very many) with a totally different approach:

Not a bad video. But, I've had to contact the "content maker" about asking for permission before using other people's photography :roll:

The ARM 250 SOC photo was taken from my A3010 images.

https://www.retro-kit.co.uk/page.cfm/co ... orn-A3010/

I don't understand. I almost always allow use if requested and the only thing I explicitly prohibit is using my photo's to misrepresent what people are selling on ebay and similar sites. It's not that I make it hard for people to ask as I provide a contact form and link to it from the copyright notice and every page on the site too.

He didn't ask me to post, but his Archie Shadow of the Beast demo is coming along nicely.

The splash image is from the Amiga version, which is what I believe he is showing could have been done better on the Arc.

Loading the wrong code into the wrong place on a Master Turbo (in emulation):

A simple CPU test on an emulated BBC Micro with Tube that crashed in a slightly more exciting way than I was expecting.

That is FANTASTIC!

Can that be done on a real BBC?

That crash sounds an awful lot like the first program on the Electron's intro tape, so yes, I'd say it can.

Here it is! https://youtu.be/TfS7kr3cwMs?t=23

No, I mean if you crash the actual hardware, will the result be the same?

It's not crashing anything, all it's doing is loading a file over the sound workspace. If you *LOAD anyfile 800 you'll get similar results.

Woah, the BBC can do that and the manual never told us?? It sounds a bit like when I would crash a Nintendo game with the NES or Game Boy Game Genie random codes for quirkiness to sample or mess with.

I'm having a play with a few files, an OK one for random music being W.CLOCK on the Welcome disk. It seems to have the vaguest of structures and progression if you listen and it certainly boots Stockhausen right up somewhere. But I'm still waiting for one to give me a good envelope, as in the video. (Any tips for what to load for those? And how to save the envelopes if I get one?)

NETMON from the Econet disk in Beebem sounds 'officey' when you play it. And ooo, A.DARE from Beebem's games disk has something of a melody and riff too.

I tried playing guitar to some Beeb random music once and now I might want to do it again. Incredible when I have books and packages for making proper music on the BBC: https://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic ... T1e9G-rLbY
