So This DevTerm from Clockwork Pi appears to be everything I could have wanted out of a #cybredeck when I was 14.

Design inspired by the Tandy 102, but slightly smaller. Screen the same basic aspect ratio as the HP 200 LX, but with modern connectivity and USB.

It'll run DOSBox, it'll run DVTM and all the various terminal apps I need.

The screen ain't sunlight readable, like my Omnibook, but ... I wonder what the bat life is like.

$200ish with shipping, pre-orders supposed to ship before April next year.

It's supposed to be "A5" sized, which confuses me? A5 is roughly digest sized, 8.3 x 5.8. That's almost pocket-able, tbh, but it's probably a little cramped to type on.


@ajroach42 Hmm...Tandy M102 was almost exactly A4 sized footprint, so this is like a half scale M102.

I'm watching this with interest, as it appears to be an open hardware design, but I would prefer it to use something more open that a Pi CM3 as the "core" if I would ever get one.
