What is 8 bit?

In the digital world there is color, bit and pixel depths. When computers and games first started, they needed a low file size to process the information quickly. 8-bit channels introduced 256 bits of color back in 1987. As technology has past we are up to 32-bit and super high-resolution screens. But our roots still are the same with square by square representation.

8 bit t shirts are a growing trend, always have been and always will be. Pixel art is the way of the digital world and now the t shirt world.

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It’s going to always be stimulating to read content from other writers and apply somewhat something from their store. I’d choose to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
