Ben Heck is sharing instructions on how to build a replica Apple 1 computer in a new three part episode of The Ben Heck Show. The last vintage Apple 1 to be auctioned sold for an incredible $905,000.

Ben decides to take on another retro 8-bit computer project and builds an Apple 1 from scratch. He wires the CPU, ROM, and RAM to a PCB and adds some logic gates for memory addressing. With this basic 6502 computer complete, he uses an oscilloscope to take a look at what the CPU is doing. The digital data shows that the 6502 is functional and Ben can move on to the next step.

Check out the first episode in the series below...
