    Lightbulb TMS9918A Retro Video Chip Reimplemented In FPGA, With VGA Out [Slashdot]



    acadiel writes "Matthew H from the AtariAge.com TI-99/4A forum has finalized a design of a TMS 9918A replacement (with VGA out) for classic computer systems such as the ColecoVision, TI-99/4A, SpectraVision, MSX1, SpectraVision 128, and Tomy Tutor Home computers. This hardware project replaces the native video controller on these classic systems and enables them to have VGA output for the first time." (It's just under $100 to order one.)

    A ColecoVision with VGA out? That's a die hard fan's toy. I would imagine this would then also work with the SG-1000?
