    That was a while ago.  I used FORTH in a mobile robot in the late
1980s, but I wouldn't do it today.

    Is Harris still making that Forth chip?  The original Moore chip,
the one where multiply only worked for even numbers, is long gone.

    If you're really into cheap chips, look into Atmel, which has
an 8-bit RISC machine in the $1 to $3 range, with free development
tools (C compiler, etc.)  This is a new design, with around 50 MIPS.
