it should be possible to connect wireless keyboard + mouse.
You can then put the standalone in a box and place it behind the TV and play games, surf or do anything you like. Also a wireless for competition would be great.
Then it would be really *COOL old RETRO FEELING* when playing games.
Why stepping back all in cable this would be useless for the standalone in these days. I think - it is a must !
With the USB-Kit from JS from IS and the software package it works fine on USB but not during booting and not in the boot loader menu.
All my Amigas have this kit:
Adding wireless LAN you can make nice package out of the Amiga comparable the AmigaTop (see PiTop). You can give them as gift to friends and say
"Amiga is still alive" -> Let's play - as in the old times !!!
This would be step a head.
"Cable-Salad" - we say in Germany - would not be a solution -> No wife would accept this !!! It would only "limit" the new freedom for speed and possibilities on applications and usage.
May be a PIC/ATMEL as add on card on the IO-PINS ??? But when, when it's needed and anyway can be programmed into the Amiga directly with adjustable keyboard conversion table.
Please let me know your thoughts.
PS: If you want to thrill or inspire "non Amiga" people you cannot come with a box of 100x100x100 mm and then add 20 cables !!! How stupid is then. From outstanding people - then nothing has changed and also the elegance is gone at all.
Remember from the past: The "Amiga" Lady was a "Queen" in the last Millennium. So, why should Apollo not be a "pretty princess" ???
So, what could be reasonable solutions? I think that software and drive are existing but how to implement ?
PS: Would it be a good idea to make a collection of "solutions" or "bundles" to identyfy what is needed in real and what is needed to make the NEW VAMP -> Sexy and Attractive <- ?
