Retrospect: Jeri Ellsworth's "Amiga on a Chip"-project
In a clip on Youtube, Jeri Ellsworth presented her (not working any longer) "Amiga on a Chip"-prototype which similar to other projects emulates the customchips of the Amiga in a FPGA to make possible a remake of the computer.

The project is from the year 2005 and apparently was meant as successor of the C64 DTV. The interested producer canceled because of the low demand for such a toy. (cg) (Translation: dr)
