Man I love Gamebuino and Gamebuino meta too! As an engineering student and somebody who loves retro games, I have fallen in love with this product. I, just as much as anyone would really love to see open source hardware, but I understand, respect and agree with Rodot not wanting to share everything just yet. I do agree it could hurt the community, and other companies could rip off his design. Also Rodot has already shared so much with us already.
When it comes the right time to release the hardware, I will be eager in making a home-brewed version, as I do love to build and design, but until then I respect Rodot's decisions.
A couple of questions (because I'm still new to this community Haha)
- Does the Meta have a specific bootloader for uploading data through SD? or is it just plug in and play (incase you upload different code onto the device and ruin the pre-installed firmware)
- Is there a plan in the way distant future to make a Gamebuino v3? And if so, do you ever look for ideas from the community? Not that the meta isn't great, but it's always fun to make and design new things. If so I had some cool ides if there's a thread for it.
