There has been a lot of buzz in the ADAM community lately about the #FujiNet project. A FujiNet device is an incredible little box that you hook up to ADAM and it serves as a disk/tape drive emulator (it has a built-in SD slot) and as a WiFi adaptor. One of the neatest things about it is that you can mount disk and tape images from remote “TNFS” servers and ADAM will treat them as local! Applications and games can also be developed with FujiNet capabilities opening up lots of possibilities for the future. For apps this allows connecting to internet-based services for things like weather, news, wikipedia - almost anything really. For games it opens up full live multi-player and shared high score boards. In fact, an upcoming firmware update will even enable shared high score boards for some of our original ADAM Super Games like Buck Rogers, Zaxxon, Donkey Kong, and Donkey Kong Jr!
We are very fortunate that Thomas Cherryhomes, mozzwald, and other volunteers have put so much effort into making FujiNet available on the Coleco ADAM. FujiNet is also available for several other 8-bit retro computers. Please visit fujinet.online to learn all about it.
Last week my Fuji Mini arrived from Lundy Electronics! As with all Lundy hardware, it’s a well-crafted device and it’s been working great. I’ve been having fun exploring what #FujiNet can do and will be posting more about it in the future.
