So This DevTerm from Clockwork Pi appears to be everything I could have wanted out of a when I was 14.

Design inspired by the Tandy 102, but slightly smaller. Screen the same basic aspect ratio as the HP 200 LX, but with modern connectivity and USB.

It'll run DOSBox, it'll run DVTM and all the various terminal apps I need.

The screen ain't sunlight readable, like my Omnibook, but ... I wonder what the bat life is like.

$200ish with shipping, pre-orders supposed to ship before April next year.

It's supposed to be "A5" sized, which confuses me? A5 is roughly digest sized, 8.3 x 5.8. That's almost pocket-able, tbh, but it's probably a little cramped to type on.

It has an integrated thermal printer, which is adorable.

It's silly, but it's cute.

I really want one. I'll honestly probably pre-order two.

@ajroach42 did you ever get anywhere on your search for a relatively local source on non-plastic paper?

@ajroach42 🤔 I could have sworn you'd talked about this more, but this convo is the only one I can find

I thought you also mentioned an environmental issue with recycling and BPA-based paper that's used for thermal transfer

@68km oh. I don't remember that. I haven't looked in to thermal printers at all.
