PiDP-8, a PDP-8/I Replica

Of all the PDP-8s, the 8/I is my favourite. Alas, getting a real one is impractical: they are pretty much impossible to obtain, and just as hard to maintain once you’ve found one. But asI learned from my $15 KIM-1 clone, making a replica is a good way to get involved with the inner guts of a vintage machine too. The idea of the PiDP-8 is to make it an open-source hardware project again.”
