Oric - Oric 1/Oric Atmos Emulator

What is an Oric?

Launched in 1983, the Oric 1 was a great success rewarding the excellent quality-price ratio of its 48 Kb version (another with only 16 Kb exists). It looks like a light and compact home computer, with a cream case and keys of the same colour. It had a reasonably high resolution (for the time) of 240*200 with 8 colours and a quality sound generator. Nevertheless a few defects existed (Basic, keyboard, connections, reliability of the tapes' load...). The Oric 1 was replaced in 1984. Its successor, the Oric Atmos, was just as compact and entirely black with the exception of a few red keys, corrected these while keeping compatibility. Therefore it was a very good choice to learn programing and play games because of its wide range of software in this domain.

Yet Oric went further than only being a home computer with its Stratos (never sold) and Telestrat models. The last one, a modified Stratos especially targeted at the french market, had increased capacities and communication features. It could act as a videotext terminal for MINITEL access, become a server and even manage a bulletin board service. Even nowadays few computers can propose so much.

But competition was fierce (CPC, C64...) and 16 bits rising thus the Oric's success looked more like a shooting star. It is estimated that half a million Oric computers have been sold, with France and Great Britain representing most of the world sales.
