well, the C64DTV was meant as an example. I've seen and read about COCO users packing the COCO into an AT case or even using an old computer to run the emulator. My ideas was to create something that looked like a joystick but was a full running COCO that could be connected to a tv with standard audio video cables. I would like to see some type of flash memory card reader that would allow users to save thier programs and such to it so they could share with their friends. With all the gadgets out there today for music,games,education; Creating an item that could be programmed using the COCO basic language would be a neat idea. I was told about the FPGA chip and thought that that could work. I know there is allot more that would need to be done, I'd be willing to help out any way I can.

there could be a market for this. I for one would not want a Coco3 SoC that was
just limited to games. Instead a small embedded SoC that would be useful for
may other things that just games.
Right now there are a few pieces that could be close to doing a alpha version of
Coco1/2 in a FPGA. An Alpha version of a Coco3 SoC in an FPGA is at least a
year away. Doing any in an ASIC is beyond the capabilities of any on this group.
