1984 - Koala produced this input device, the KoalaPad Model 004, in 1984. It came with a stylus and DE-9 socket connector for the joystick port of an ATARI 8-bit computer. Its pad area measures 4.25" x 4.25". The stylus marks on the pad by pressure, as can fingers. The transparent sheet is missing from this unit which would let you place an item to be traced between the sheet and the touch surface.
Its FCC ID was finalized 04/07/1983. Other versions worked on other 8-bit home computers: Apple II, TRS-80 Color Computer, Commodore 64 and IBM PCs.
