XORRO Prototyping/Expansion board

Postby amb5l » Thu Mar 08, 2012 12:35 pm

Hi all,

We've tested the first prototyping board for the XORRO slot on the Nemo mainboard. You can see a video of it here:

James will post some additional notes and pictures.

Oooh, cool.

Being a BeBox lover, and the X1000 Case has some nice slits on both sides of the front face of the case, it would be bad ass if they made a CPU Monitor/ HDD Access LED light array that was like the BeBox and design one for the X1000.

hehehe

I always loved and still do the BeBoxen Blinken Lights on the case and was cool seeing them showing CPU Activity and HDD Access. Go one step further and have a music mode that the lights go nuts when playing music. 8-)

I'd like to see a set of LEDs that show the current bus address and data, just like the old days. No, come to think of it, those were incandescent lamps...
cheers
