A salute to the Atari 400

 

 

This is my EclaireXL, an Atari compatible computer on steroids designed by the

amazing team of Foft and SantosP hooked up to a Rana 1000 disk drive with

keyboard & joystick both designed by me.

Did you get your pictures posted? I don't see any link, and just your thumbnail. Interested in your keyboard. Is it more like an Atari keyboard, or just a PC/Windows keyboard? Wireless?

This is the only picture I have at the moment. It is a PC keyboard with custom key caps as the EclaireXL uses a USB keyboard. This keyboard is wired but the key caps should work with any keyboard that has cherry-type keys and uses the same layout.

Is this a photo or a render?

It's a real device - he had the keycaps printed. Not sure where he got the case.

Yup. Never liked photo hosting services. Had similar experiences 10 and even 15 years ago. One little change, one stroke of the pen, and poof! It's all gone.

 

I never quite fully understood why people had to use a cloud service anyways. Was there some gift from god involved? Just use the forum's own file & picture upload function.
