Hacking the Hummer DTV Game

I found this rather nifty website detailing how you can hack a Hummer DTV Game that you can buy from Radio Shack for $18.00. Why would you want to do this? Because it contains an improved version of the Commodore 64 that Jeri Ellsworth originally created for the C64 DTV, a wackly little joystick that plugs into the TV and plays a bunch of old video games. Jeri did an excellent job, and the hardware can easily be converted to be a fully functional C64, including hooking to an old disk drive.

The Hummer DTV even includes some flash that can be reprogrammed to hold your own programs! I'm beginning to ponder a project based upon it.
