What is a VRoBIT?

It is a new retro-computer inspired by the legendary MSX computers, compatible with all its models in addition to being able to be with other retro-computers and consoles. This project was born in 2014 in order to create a new MSX to being known by the new audience the essence of computer science in the 80s and 90s, and its way of interacting with programming and the computer. Enjoying incredible improvements, gadgets, having fun learning, programming and playing are our main motivation. We want to make a VRoBIT to re-enjoy the purest computing that has ever existed. That where man and machine were one and communicated with the feel of the keys. Read on and discover everything that a VRoBIT can offer you!

Main features

299€ (TAXES Included)

We have worked hard to get an affordable price. Next we want you to understand what includes this price and we hope it seems more reasonable and justified. Keep in mind that we do not consider in the price anything related to the cost of the software offered with the machine or the assembly of it. The price is based only on the  cost of everything necessary for its manufacture and sale. Our main motivation is to get the project to the market and to have as many people as possible. So, effectively, the responsibility is huge but it's worth it.

MSX, MSX2, MSX2+, MSXTR COMPATIBLE

The reason of being of the VRoBIT machine is to make to last in time the standard MSX at the same time to extend it and to give it  new characteristics adapted to new time. The MSX was our first computer and we have a very special affection. For many years we have seen how many projects to improve the system have been forgotten or have been discarded. We wanted to take the evolutionary concept of the system from the software side, interacting with the hardware rather than the other way around. We wanted to give ourselves the opportunity to try out this new approach and we are very happy with the result.

MULTI-MACHINE SYSTEM

As with the MSX, we put ourselves in the shoes of other users with the same nostalgia and appreciation for their machines of yesteryear as well as wanting to share this with the new generations. Being an emulation based system allows us to interpret other systems and interact with their hardware in real time. At the moment there is already a machine ZX48K, CPC464 and C64, although we would like to continue adding new machines such as NES, SNES, MegaDrive among others, with capacity to develop and access to all their cartridges.

1Gb RAM/VRAM Shared

The system has a shared memory system between RAM and VRAM. You are allowed to configure how much memory you want in each part. It depends on the use you want to give your machine. By default, the system is left with 512Mb of RAM and 512Mb of VRAM. It is the proportion that we consider most suitable for the majority of users.

64 bits - QUAD CORE 1’2Mhz

This power is enough to run applications designed exclusively for this computer. Our efforts are taking advantage of this power to the maximum and improving the software we offer to make it so.

4 x SLOTS FOR CARTRIDGES

50 pins fully compatible with the MSX standard and also gives us the opportunity to connect with other systems thanks to the ability to redefine its functionality. The access times are in real time and it is possible to access the MSX hardware (or other machine) as if the original machine were.

2 x GAME PORTS

DB9 ports (9 pins) configurable to be able to connect compatible devices: MSX / SPECTRUM / ATARI / AMSTRAD / C64 / GENESIS.

ioext.png

1 x IO EXTENSION (DB37)

Special and genuine VRoBIT port to connect devices of any type. Dota 32-bit connection and voltage lines + 12V, -12V, 5V and 3.3V with transfer speed adjustable up to 1.7Mhz.

button.png

4 x BUTTONS

It has four buttons: POWER ON / OFF, SLOT ON / OFF, RESET and PAUSE. With the POWER button, you can safely switch the equipment on and off. The SLOT button is very interesting because it allows us to insert or remove cartridges in hot with total safety of not damaging the hardware. The RESET button applies a hardware reset and PAUSE allows us to warn the system applications that we want to pause them.

8 x LEDS

Indicators led that allows us to observe the power status, whether we are in safe slot insertion mode, pause, whether the emulation is making use of the disk drive, the kana, the caps and with the ability to self-define for make another type of use or have other settings.

1 x ANALOG STEREO AUDIO OUTPUT (CARTRIDGE SOUND + VIRTUAL SOUND) +  ANALOG VIDEO OUTPUT

We can enjoy all the real-time audio generated by the cartridges and be able to get a video output on a CRT television.

Package Content

  • One unit VRoBIT HC4001
  • The necessary software installed so that you can take advantage from the first moment to your machine
  • A compatible 12V / 10A power supply
  • Document with information on the use, installation and warranty of the product

Preorder

We need at least 1000 interested in a VRoBIT. It is the minimum to be able to begin to manufacture (minimum orders, molds, etc) and get an affordable price like the one proposed. Therefore, the steps to follow before opening a preorder would be that at least, on the web, there would be those 1000 theoretical stakeholders. The preorder would do it for KickStarter for more transparency and tranquility of the majority of you. Therefore, it is important that people register on the web, because until we are not enough interested (at least 1000 registered)  it does not make much sense to take the step of preorder. Therefore, if you are interested in this project and want to join it, please register and in this way we will also be able to warn you of the important decisions and events that are happening. Thank you!

Why you may be interested in a VRoBIT?

  • You like MSX and want on a single machine the compatibility with all the MSX models. It is an all in one.
  • VRoBIT wants to become more than an MSX from the MSX system itself. He wants to get us to feel that we are facing an updated MSX in the current times and we want it to continue advancing and lasting forever.
  • Includes VDP9990 and Moonsound emulation. Of course, you can insert the original cartridges too, but for those who can not opt ​​for this and want to enjoy the games brought for this hardware, in a VRoBIT they could.
  • It has its own characteristics and graphic potential. There are exclusive games and applications VRoBIT able to delight us and give free rein to our imagination.
  • VRoBIT offers you a way of interacting with the machine in the same way as it did with the computers of the 80's-90's. Home-machine in a singular and beautiful communication.
  • It allows you to run games from other machines like ZX48K, Amstrad CPC464 and Commodore 64. We will integrate new machines as VRoBITers ask us to include new ones.
  • In the same way you can develop apps and games on all platforms supported by VRoBIT tools (MSX, ZX, CPC and C64 at the moment)
  • VRoBIT can not only run games or applications from other machines in digital format. Adapters can be created to place NES, SNES, or other console cartridges.
  • You can debug real games in real time. You can insert a real MSX cartridge and for its execution, hack the RAM, devices, etc. You have the control.
  • Adjust and parameterize the virtual machines to create "aggreements" that never existed and that will surely make you spend good times of experimentation.
  • Be able to operate devices you had forgotten in a cabinet on top of a shelf. The generic expansion system we have included will allow us to create drivers to connect strangest devices.
  • Although you can connect the VRoBIT to a CRT TV via Euroconnector, you can also connect it to an HDMI display.
  • Control drones, robots and any device remotely in addition to their programming.
  • Electronic laboratory with which to create and / or test devices besides programming them.

Videos

You can find videos with features and functionalities in this computer going to our youtube channel.

Connectors and Sizes

*RCA INPUT. It is one of the things we are studying to be able to include in an HC-5001. The option to mix audio / video input.

FAQ

Can I connect an original MSX keyboard?

If you can. At this time we have the driver and soon the adapter to connect external Philips keyboards of the NMS8250 / 8280. We can create more adapters and drivers but we need to go purchasing these devices to be able to do so.

Can I connect a USB keyboard?

Of course. The system detects it automatically.

Which language versions are available on the computer keyboard?

Although we are looking at the possibility of offering different language configurations, the only option by the moment is English. As soon as we know more about this, we will update this information on this same tab.

Can I read games from a floppy disk?

You can connect a USB floppy drive and the system detects it. At the moment, it works at a high level and we do not have a low level driver to access protected disks.

Can I load cassette games?

Yes, via the DIN adapter or via the computer's MIC port.

How do I connect the computer to a VGA?

You can purchase a compatible HDMI2VGA converter (coming soon on the web)

How can I use MIDI?

There is a MIDI adapter and also adapters to connect MSX musical keyboards like Toshiba, Yamaha or Philips (coming soon on the web)

Which sound-chips are emulated?

AY8910(PSG), SCC, SCC+, OPLL(MSX-Music/FMPAC), Music-Module(MSX-Audio), OPL3, OPL4, SID

FPGA or emulation?

Actually this question is strange in itself since the FPGA is also emulation, only from a hardware perspective, but emulation at the end. However many ask about whether or not there is some FPGA in the VRoBIT and the answer is, no. The VRoBIT HC4001 uses as its "FPGA" a RaspBerry Pi 3, implementing the entire emulation layer by software. Then there is another hardware layer tailored for the project, this layer allows you to connect cartridges and other real devices to the system. The software layer interacts to be able to act on this hardware layer in real time and to simulate what an "FPGA" would do. Therefore, it is not just emulation, here we interact with real hardware done purposely.

Does it include an MSX3?

The "MSX3" has not been officially defined by anyone yet. In a VRoBIT have invented some "extras" like the V9978 and the R8000 that are invented components for this hypothetical MSX3. The V9978 would be a video chip compatible with V9938 / V9958 and carrying additional things and the R8000 is an improved and compatible version of the R800. The "MSX3" configuration can be created and modified like any other configuration within a VRoBIT. A user can create his own machine and name it as he likes, associate the CPU, VDP, audio, RAM, etc. and then be able to use it in the games he wants or by default when starting the system or when he pleases specifying the name that has been given.

BASIC & Assembler programming guide(s)

Can't wait to have this computer at home!
I grew up on C=64 so I'm familiar with BASIC and MOS 6510 assembler but never had MSX computer. So I (in the meantime :-)) installed openMSX using SONY HB-F9P ROMs and started to renew my BASIC and Assembler programming skills.
Does anybody know where to find some advanced BASIC programming guide(s) and some basic & advance Z80a (MSX-related) ASSEMBLER giude(s) and some "(Deep) Inside MSX" guide(s) as well?
Thanks a lot for your help!

FPGA or RPI?

I'm not sure if it's a FPGA implementation or RPI with Linux and a software layer. Could you explain it? I've returned to Amiga Computer with happiga project (rpi emulation) and I'm started to develop amiga software so it's fine for me an emulation implementation for VRoBit but I would want to know what are there inside. Excuse me for my english, but I would want that not spanish speaker can understand my question and your answer.

I found this by accident while looking for an MSX linux console font, off gigamix.jp, found MSGDRV, ended up @kumokosi on twiter where he has an image and url of the VRoBIT HC4001

Interesantísimo

Me emociona este proyecto, veo muchisimo potencial en ello, además que soy un usuario de C64, de todos modos tengo entendido que Microsoft había apoyado MSX hasta que IBM hizo lo suyo. O sea que sería darle una nueva oportunidad a que un estandard alternativo tenga su lugar en el mundo. Y eso de conectar drones a esto me regresa a los sueños de mi juventud.

VRoBIT Team

Buenas VRoBITers!

Como bien sabéis, y sino os lo decimos nosotros, seguimos mirando y trabajando el concepto de retro-ordenador con todo integrado y que estéticamente cumpla los requisitos que todos albergamos en nuestros corazones, en cuanto al concepto de aspecto de un MSX. De momento esa vía no es realista en términos de costes y precio, así que hemos decido en favor del proyecto, construir el modelo HC4000 (y seguramente un HC5000) modelos idénticos salvo por el precio y algunas características extra. En estos modelos intentamos ajustar el precio y ofrecer la esencia del VRoBIT a gente a la que el tema estético le importa menos y para los que el precio si es muy importante.

El modelo HC4000 (y el HC5000 si finalmente se desarrolla) saldrán en preorder en Septiembre/Octubre de este año. Avisaremos oficialmente por email a todos los registrados en la web, al margen de los avisos que hagamos por redes sociales.

Los modelos con teclado integrado HC4001 (y HC5001 si se diese el caso) no sabemos a ciencia cierta cuando saldrán. Esperamos que para después del verano del 2018.

Gracias a todos por vuestra paciencia y apoyo en el proyecto.

----------------------------------

Hello VRoBITers!

As you well know, and if we tell you, we continue to look and work the concept of retro-computer with everything integrated and that aesthetically meets the requirements that we all hold in our hearts, as to the concept of appearance of an MSX. So far that path is not realistic in terms of costs and price, so we have decided in favor of the project, build the HC4000 model (and certainly an HC5000) identical models except for the price and some extra features. In these models we try to adjust the price and offer the essence of the VRoBIT to people who the aesthetic theme cares less about and for which the price if it is very important.

The HC4000 model (and the HC5000 if it finally develops) will be preordered in September / October this year. We will officially notify all those registered on the web by email, regardless of the notices we make through social networks.

The models with integrated keyboard HC4001 (and HC5001 if that is the case) we do not know for sure when they will come out. Hopefully for after the summer of 2018.

Thank you all for your patience and support in the project.

Hurray a new homecomputer in 2017

Great to see that the idea of a homecomputer still exists. The raspberry PI is great, but it does not really conform to the idea of a computer you can turn on, and start programming in BASIC immediately that was the main attraction of homecomputers from the 80's.
glad to see another mayor MSX revival.

One question, what do you mean by "1 x VCC SLOT Button", do you mean a power input (switch)?

hope this takes off!

Pues este proyecto la verdad es que me tiene muy ilusionado, yo compraré uno y apoyamos de camino este proyecto tan interesante.
Por sugerir, me gustaría en negro o gris oscuro :), pero vamos blanco es bonito.

Deseando que llegue!

Despues de escuchar el Msx extendido nº13,las ganas de tenerlo son aun mayores.
Espermos que el precio no se dispare mucho,alberto da a entender en la entrevista que estan intentandolo,a ver como queda la cosa,en retromadrid saldremos de dudas.
Decir que el cursor elegido(philips 8280) no es mi favorito,para mi los del hb10p/hb 20p son los mejores,sera porque es el msx que mas años disfrute,pero bueno,no puede llover a gusto de todos.
Desde aqui,solo me queda dar animos a Alberto y a la gente que esta detras de este proyecto tan grande.

Animos!!!

Great idea and concept!

Very much looking forward to the MSXVR - the combination of modern technology and MSX feeling (cartridge slots, home-computer look-alike, joy stick ports, DOS and BASIC...) and especially its full compatibility with MSX hardware extensions will certainly sum up to an awesome machine!

Interesante-Curisoso e impaciente

Resulta el extremo interesante, y más pudiendo usar las nuevas características en los nuevos desarrollos de software. Ese wifi/rj45(se le puede sacar chispas) con desarrollos futuros de software. Espectante hallomé .

Fuera de serie

Esto es lo que llevamos años esperando los Msxeros, una autentica genialidad. Un ordenador que sigue el estandar MSX, y más opciones que un Turbo R, genial!

Haciendo espacio ya en el escritorio

Pues eso, haciendo ya espacio en el escritorio y si pudiese sustituir en el futuro, con nuevo software al PC para uso diario mejor que mejor.
Personalmente me inclino por la versión pro con teclado mecánico si es posible. (Sugerencia, ya puestos que lleve algo más de RAM de lo especificado).
Ánimos y adelante.

Expectativa

El proyecto me parece genial. Por un momento me he visto utilizando este msx3, tanto para jugar a los juegos que más me gustan, como para ver y abrir los correos electrónicos y navegar por Internet, osea poder utilizarlo todos los días de forma cotidiana, siempre orgullosos de poder hacerlo en un msx. Gracias por vuestro trabajo. Esperando para el mejor modelo que podáis ofrecer. Un saludo y ánimo.

esperandolo

me interesa sobremanera el ordenador, por supuesto, me iria a la versión PRO que supongo será la que lleve el teclado incorporado
de todas formas, los que adquieran el LITE, supongo que podrían adquirir el "teclado oficial" en un futuro, un teclado como el del 8250 o el ML-G3 que son de los más bonitos de los MSX2 con "dos cuerpos"

observaciones daniel nebot

yo considero que si se hacen varios precios , haya compatible hasta TR, CON V9990, OPL4... si después hay modos inferiores pues bien... con respecto a teclado mecanico , a mi no me hace falta si eso encarece el produsto, que haya con y sin teclado mecanico.Si , encambio veo bastante lógico RGB,HDMI,RCA; el RGB con cable que acabe en SCART para TV CRT, aunque otra salida HDMI para TV O MONITOR LED...Muy bien que lleve el DOS , BASIC, TTURBO BASIC , ETC ya preinstalado en ROM o alguna memoria que ya lleva la maquina y un buen detalle que lleva manuales básicos de MSDOS , BASIC , ETC

Versión Lite

Pues sería interesante qué tenéis pensado para la versión Lite. Hay gente como yo que con tener compatibilidad hasta MSX2, SD, dos slot de cartucho, y salida HDMI ya nos sobra y basta.

Brilliant concept of the nextgen MSX computer

I cannot help but to be amazed of such a good concept of what the new generation MSX should be: new amazing operating system, "classic" MSX mode, multitasking...

I love that you never tried to become a PC, but to bring up the MSX feeling with current technolofy. Kudos!
