We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Tangerine release the Oric 1

1983
Tangerine release the Oric 1

Tangerine release the Oric 1. Tangerine systems used the name Oric for a range of 8bit home micros. The Oric 1 came in 16K and 48K forms, and was a competitor to the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

During 1983 over 160000 Oric 1's were sold in the UK. Unlike the Spectrum, the Oric was based on the 6502 CPU (rather than the Spectrum's Z80).

Although the Oric 1 sold well, bugs were discovered in the ROM, and the Oric 1 was soon replaced by the Oric Atmos.
