Using a mouse with the ADAM?

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question that just crossed my mind: If Coleco had released a mouse for the ADAM back in the day, how would one connect it to the ADAM memory console? Via the ADAMNet connector, or perhaps using a "T" adaptor on the connector used for the keyboard (if that makes any sense)?


I know that the joystick ports would not have been a good option, considering the Roller Controller requires external power, and an ADAM mouse would probably generate the same kind of interrupts as the Roller Controller.

Best guess would have been via the 9-pin controller ports with an adapter to provide power or by using batteries.


Check out the Coleco Adam Facebook page concerning a mod William Hicks made to the Adamouse released by Thomas Mackie in the late 80s and a new Mouse adapter PCB just developed by John Lundy.
