“ Il est là en vitrine... qu'il est beau avec son vrai clavier et puis ce rouge !...

Bon, j'entre. Il y a là deux vendeurs et une demi-douzaine de clients.
J'attends mon tour en examinant l' intérieur du magasin, apparemment l'ATMOS est la principale attraction. Il y en a cinq en démonstration , aucun autre ordinateur ne tourne et visiblement tout le monde repart avec son ORIC sous le bras (Pourvu qu'il en reste…).

Ca y est c'est mon tour et il en reste !!! Ca y est, j'ai mon Oric ! ”

Volcanic 4 Demo

1998 - Mickaël Pointier

“Hey, the first demo on the Oric, it was really impressive when i saw it for the first. I was not thinking that Oric could do that. It's also a factor for me that learn a lot more on the Oric in 98.”

“This was the first time I think that anyone had seen a demo on the Oric (by demo I mean something form the demo-scene, not the Atmos Welcome Tape :-). It was very shocking to see something like this on the Oric - it was so much more powerful than anything that had been seen before, although I had seen similar demo's on the Spectrum and great ones on the 64. Contains lots of really good little bits - the polygon routine is particularly neat and the Windows 95 screen is funny.”
