Turn Your Raspberry Pi Into A Computer From The 80s Using Commodore Pi

The goals of the project include an HDMI and composite compatible video output, SID based sound, Sprites and other notable Commodore features. They also plan to have hooks for more modern technology to include Ethernet, GPIO and expansion RAM.
