from www.msx.org:
The One Chip MSX, which was demonstrated at PLD World, contains 32MB SDRAM, 1MB SRAM, FlashROM, a SD card slot, 2 cartridge slots, 2 MSX Joystick ports, 2 USB ports, VGA and SVHS video outputs and a stereo audio-connector. A keyboard can be connected through a standard PS/2 port. Using VHDL on a Cyclone EP1C12Q240C8 FPGA chip, the entire MSX1 standard is perfectly emulated. This prototype may however differ from the final production version.

Mr. Yokoi and Mr. Sato continued talking about the FPGA possibilities of this device. Thanks to the FPGA structure, the One Chip MSX1 can easily be upgraded to be fully MSX2 compatible in the future. At the moment the chip is already partly MSX2 compatible. However, the production version of the One Chip MSX1 also allows the end-user to alter the VHDL code, thus designing a new MSX computer. This way it is, for instance, possible to allow a double amount of sprites to be displayed on one line, or to add more colors, or even to let the MSX write data directly to VRAM. The best thing is yet to come: The software for improving the VHDL code for the One Chip MSX, Quartus 2 is free of charge.

Now, no one has an idea what the case's going to look like, but here's a nifty idea :D

the idea of ejecting cartridges like that is quite hilarious :D

the article is serious, though ;)
