In this forum you can write about anything that does not fit in other forums.
This includes generic Oric talkings and things that are totaly unrelated but want to share with people here :)

Yes, great idea indeed!
I think there is real chance with jorodr's work to have (soon) AtmoStrat laptop :shock:.

@ibisum: Here is a "spoiler" of one of my projects especially for you. Use with Oricutron in Atmos mode.
Just press "ESC" from time to time. For others it's secret... ;)

The most difficult part for now will be to find a real 4/3 LCD screen

Fabrice "Euphoric" Francès did it two years ago:

What would be great would be a small integrated colour screen on the Atmos - there's room for it at the top of the keyboard. Would be small (size of a small smartphone) but would solve any display / scart / UHF problem.

I thought Fabrice did that (small screen of 2 or 3 lines of text) but I couldn't find it on YouTube.
Maybe it is on his Google Plus page.

Edit: I checked and it isn't there either. Maybe I saw that somewhere else.

He did something slightly different: a real portable Atmos (with batteries) and indeed a very small screen of 2 lines.
My idea would rather be a real screen (no need to use batteries ?), I'm absolutely no expert but it doesn't seem undoable (stick the screen on the Oric and power it from the same source)

Ah I remember well then :)

Indeed a real 4/3 screen integrated on the Atmos would be awesome.

Modify the Cumulus to have a path-through for the video :D

Screen with enought resolution for an Oric and that fit here exist for sure, it's something definitely possible, not that easy unless you find a portable ATV with a screen that small and accepting RGB
