Atari strikes back! After the bitter failure of the ST Book, they presented in 1991 a new computer: the STylus.

This notepad uses the Atari ST operating system. It seems that it had no handwriting recognition (like the Apple Newton), and only few modifications were done in the OS to use a pen instead of a mouse. It had no storage device and was presented with saved RAM cards (unknown storage capacity).

This computer was never marketed. We don't know if it actually worked, the only STylus we saw in a show was linked to an Atari Mega ST with lot of cables.

Joshua Waller reports:
Apparently, according to an Atari Magazine at the time (ST Format), the Stylus was never produced because they could not get it to recognise Sam Tramiel's handwriting.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


Another idea from Atari R$D that was ahead of it''s time. I wonder if the TOS extensions and some of the tablet specific hardware could be reverse engineered to create a modern tablet based around a generic touchscreen and Suska or Firebee board?

At least 1 working prototype exists and was sold to a collector on eBay. Several cases were also produced and a rumored number of incomplete prototypes are said to exist. Like the STE+, many of the parts that were found and sold were in Atari Mexico''s inventory, which was sold off after the final collapse of Atari.
