I’ve entered Retro Challenge 2015!
My plan is to build a serial-connected receipt printer connected to a Commodore 64.
My goal is to print basic “Business Cards” on this receipt printer during various Exhibitions and/or presentations at Retro Computer events.
The project will be a kiosk-style interface that allows someone to print my basic publicly available contact info (Twitter handle, web address) by just hitting the space bar on the Commodore 64. In addition, I will have a hidden option that prompts for password that will print my full contact info at my request (e-mail address and cell phone number).
To accomplish this, I want it to be fully retro, so I’m obviously using a dot matrix receipt printer. After some research, I’ve chosen the Epson TM-325UD model M133A.
(My apologies for the stock photo, my printer has yet to arrive from the eBay vendor)
