Toshiba
Visicom 100

This beautiful but obscure Japanese system was released in january 1978. It's basically a clone of the RCA Studio gaming system, one of the first videogame console of all time (released in january 1977).

Made by Toshiba, this beauty was also based on the RCA 1802 micro-processor, and its video counterpart, the CDP 1861. However the main difference with the Studio II is that the Visicom 100 offers colour display thanks additional hardware.

Another nice difference, is that unlike the Studio II the Visicom comes with 2 beautiful joystick controllers.

The Visicom 100 has 5 built in games (Doodle, Patterns, Bowling, Freeway and Additions), just like the RCA Studio II.

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 Old-Computers.com or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).
