The first universal floppy unit
Using the same floppy reader with an Oric or a TO7 (a french computer from Thomson) or writing a program on your Apple to load it on a ZX81: the dream has become reality thanks to a french engineer.
Cyborg, a powerful and universal floppy reader (720k of storage) can be used on various systems. The only compatibility constraints are a little bus-adapter for each machine and a floppy with the operating system.
Thus basic programs can be saved and loaded on different computers as text files.
The cyborg which aims at creating the first standard of universal reader, also targets the programs security with the instruction SECURE which protects software creators against piracy.
Last but not least: it's price, FF2700 (don't ask me in Euros...) (including VAT). It is likely to be one of the cheapest readers on the market as soon as it will be on the market this summer.
