Chameleon

Availability: No delivery date or availability confirmed

Chameleon is a new re-configurable computer system.

It can be used as a minature stand-alone computer system running many third-party cores in development such as Amiga (Minimig), C64 and Spectrum.


It can alternatively plugged to the rear expansion port of the C64. When installed in the rear of the Commodore 64, Chameleon is an extremely user-friendly cartridge that can be used without opening the computer.

As a stand-alone unit it features a SD card slot on the side to read data files, a VGA socket to output to a monitor display and a cable loom to connect to a PS/2 keyboard and mouse.

It can be powered by a USB power adapter or active USB hub can be used as power source (available separately). Even a USB-enabled computer (LCD-TVs, DVD-players...) can be used as a power source!

The Chameleon can be used with the new Chameleon Docking Station or the CDTV Remote Controller which can be added as an Accessory Option (below).
