[Coco] Drivewire over PI was: The BIGGEST PROBLEM with (So-Called) NEW CoCo Hardware...

I have been following the discussion with some interest, as I have myself
 already  started doing some work using Pi as a generic peripheral for (not
a Coco, but) MSX.
CoCo and MSX were my firts computers, and to date I switch bursts of
attention and work between them from time to time.

The interface I am working on, and which I called MSXPi for obvious reason,
has multiple applications so won't start a list here.

It's design fits in a cartrige, because it was made to be used with Pi
Zero, altought the current prototypes can be connected to any model.

Due to so many different applications it allowa, and convenience since
there are no wires running accross the setup, it is a perfect toy... there
is always new to try, do develop.
And using the wifi dongle (or the new Pi Zero W) things just got more

This was just to give some ideas, to know what else is there, what worka,
what don't...

Plenty of pictures and demos the facebook group, and some videos on youtube
if anyone want to take a look.
I would love to see something like MSXPi for the CoCo.
