We started out in the summer of 2019 with our first product and company, Phone by Mako. Phone by Mako was a do it yourself phone aimed at young makers, made to teach them how phones work and how people make them. The phone ran on an Adafruit board that used an Arduino with a SIM module attached. It included a Pong game, and could store three contacts. We made the code available to everyone, who could edit it with the Arduino IDE. After the Phone by Mako, we started work on the next iteration of Phone by Mako, dubbed Version 2. Version 2 added many new features, such as large color screen, rounded corners and buttons, 4G LTE connectivity, and a new redesign with a thinner case that was easier to put together, thanks to a custom PCB. Version 2 was also cheaper and included more apps, such as SMS messaging, a calculator, and a stopwatch/timer. We developed an app with our own IDE, which made updating the device much easier. After this, we began work on our current project: 8BC. The idea was similar; a do it yourself kit for makers and hobbyists, except instead of a phone, a computer. This computer, we decided, was going to be different than others. Unlike a Raspberry Pi, we decided 8BC should run BASIC, similar to a lot of 8 bit machines produced in the late 70’s to early 80’s. The kit would teach you everything about computers, and when we say everything, we mean everything. We aimed to include the most in-depth yet extremely simple instruction manual, teaching the customer not only how the computer works, but about logic gates, ICs, FPGAs, and a whole lot more. We also teach the user about the software. With this, anyone can create even the most advanced programs. We also kept in mind experienced customers, who want to hack and modify the computer itself. We sell addons allowing people to customize the kernel, or computer operating system. We also provide all of the schematics for the computer, so anyone can recreate 8BC or redesign it to their liking. And to top it off, we include everything you need to create 8BC, including the power supply, case, and custom printed circuit board for only $50.
