Hey people,

I can buy a used arduino r3 from a friend of mine for dirt-cheap.
Since i've allways liked programming (started in basic, ended in C and assembly for several platforms) and like playing around with electronics I thought.......why not combine these two things?

I'm a huge retro computer fan and I was wondering if someone has succeeded in getting the arduino to act as a Z80 computer (combined with a gameduino maybe) and let it act as a Sinclair ZX81 or ZX80.

If so, does anyone have the code and scematics to do so?
