Hello, I have a Station Turbo Color box and a white one,
still running well in 10 years over as a personal server.

I found this forum just a few days ago. I'm quite happy
because I could not find such a forum in Japan now.

Of course I suppose many people has NeXT boxes in Japan,
but quite few people could drive and use it. So I could not
get any NEW info especially about software porting.

Anyway, I know some of the NeXT world in Japan, using
NS3.3 Japanese. If you have some interest in NS at Japan,
please feel free to ask me.

Thanks.

Hello Hisanori and welcome to this board!

Funny! I'm always interested in Badai Pippin stuff and Cobalt Cubes and their main community resides in Japan as far as I know... Well, a new basis for information exchange, I suppose ;-)

Have fun and enjoy Your NeXT!

Jenne,

Thank you for your reply.

Hello again, Hisanori.

Yes, I meant the Bandai Pippin gaming console. Most of the hacks that were done for that strange device occured in Japan (no wondering about this because the Pippin was mainly made and sold over there). I'm owning the controller and the device itself, but no keyboard and only three software CDs that are made in Japanese - and I'm not able to read or write this Sad It is even harder today to find software for this odd machine than the machine itself and eBay sellers are somewhat odd about pricing for their offers, too.

Anyway, tis doesn't have to do very much with NeXT, so let's get back to it ;-)

J

Jenne,

http://www.tcp-ip.or.jp/~danbo/pippin/
http://www.catkicking.com/pippin/

You can see the image, small keyboard with small LCD as a
tablet like a Nintendo DS.

Pippin has PPC603 processor, made with Bandai and Apple.
They had a dream to be a famous game company...

Bests,
