TRS-80 Dropbox and Wikipedia Interfaces

Peter Cetinski shares two fun applications for Peter Bartlett’s MISE hardware add-on. Even if you don’t own the MISE, the “Model I System Expander”, the applications may still intrigue you.

The applications sort answer the question, “What might it have looked like if we had the Internet when the TRS-80 was one of the most popular machines around?” Of course the question is a bit absurd, but still fantastic!

Cetinski has created TRS80WIKI and TRS80WIKIH to view pages using the TRS-80. The “H” version uses PCG-80 high-res graphics simulation to render Wikipedia images.

And a second useful app, is TRS-Box — a DROPBOX Internet client for the TRS-80.

I think my mind is a bit blown!
