Right!
Dieter known informations about this O4 project.
A few months ago I've meet Mr. David Winter in Paris.
He was a friend of Mr. Raph Baer and spent time with him.
Mr. Winter said he know well Dieter.
David Winter talks me about the O4 project and he said he owns the first K.C. prototype when it was like PacMan in the game.   :)

System specs is (graphically) something between NES and SEGA Master System.
Very good for a (possible)1984 release.

There's no mention about sound chip or processor type.
I didn't find anything, at least.

Which Philips used in the CDI.. well, ok a 68010

Also nice to read how they contemplate a downloadable game repository with local storage, something the current game consoles already rely upon.

P.S. Where would they find 1 or 1.5 Megabyte harddisks ? :-)
