I read somewhere that one of the planned attachments was a laser disk player did any prototypes of any attachments come up or was only on paper

 

 

Curt posted a memo from December 22, 1983 regarding the Laserdisc. A likely scenario, as mentioned in the thread Swami posted, the Laserdisc was something Atari had intended on developing after the Computer Keyboard release.

 

The Computer Keyboard expansion (which plugs into the controller port), including a SIO port and cassette interface, progressed to completion as highlighted at the Atari Museum..."The unit is finished and software is ready as well."

Those people in the ad look overjoyed with atarilab. My parents made the same face in 89 when they dropped 2700 on a computer, moniter, printer and I made some art on the dot matrix printer for my brother's bedroom wall. I guess they thought the 6 foot banner that said "EAT SHIT!!" was a waste of money.. :(
