Wireless connectivity is almost a given in 2022, with most devices disposing of the ports and sockets we all love, for futuristic, cable free connections! But if you ever wanted to connect your C64 using wireless technology, then the WME64 Wifi Modem is just what you need!
This budget friendly way of connecting your beloved Commodore 64, 128, or VIC-20 to the net is the ideal way to get back on the old BBS services without mountains of cables and adapters – connecting to a modern Wifi router as you would with a laptop, desktop or mobile device. It connects to the user port, emulating a 2400 baud (or faster) modem – and is, incredibly, compatible with every program that uses a modem!
The brains behind the operation is the ESP8266 microcontroller and its case is designed and 3D printed by the seller complete with a snazzy color label. The WME64 Wifi Modem is ready to go form the moment it arrives – conveniently pre-configured at your choice of speed. Time to get on the information superhighway!
If you’re into ancient devices going online, I highly recommend Dan Wood’s excellent youtube channel where he explores that exact topic – amongst other fantastic things! This is the first product from Studio 8502 who are based in Ontario, Canada. We can’t wait to see what they have in store next!
