Built and programmed by The IceBear
This prototype with reduced functionality was in operation by October 2011.
It is equipped with a ENC28J60 ethernet controller, which - unfortunately - is limited in it's functionality due to lack of memory. Eventually, building this first version was rather a "learning process" than building for keeps.
Thus the actual version 1 only provides some basic functionality which is not satisfactory to fullfill the purpose of the machine. In addition it also has only a small 2x 16 character display.
