Hi all,

As I read an article on Facebook, having the C64 based on FPGA back in production.

We can do partly the same for the coco's, not to make a new coco 5 but to make a general new housing.

Maybe we should think about a new case design, one that can harbor the old existing board's coco 1/2/3 and also the coco FPGA either Becker's or the Coco-on-a-chip ( sorry do not know exactly the designer) even if possible maybe both. ( meaning old board with FPGA design )

In the later case I think it would be a good idea to have a universal outside terminal board, which looks the same on the outside, but has inside connection to the respective board inside. A smaller secondary smaller panel ( different connectors ) for the terminals of the FPGA, so both can function on there own.

Maybe the ones that feel called to make a design should make some sketches and when we have the most practical, we can fundraising the means of have it produced. I think that most of us would like to spend $70...$100 to a new case.

Well just something to talk about, and if you feel like to put your $0.02 worth of comments, then do this on the group COCO CASE , I made for discussion.
