10th September 2022 1 hr 5 min

This week the guys take a look at a huge gaming collection that has appeared on Ebay, the asking price is quite a sum. We all know the C64's SID chip can create some interesting sounds but did you know that you can control it by waving your hands in the air? How about a Theramin add on? Finally, a Japanese Minister has called time on the use of out dated technology including the humble Floppy Disk! Is it time to say goodbye?

All this and your answers to our community question of the week.
