Commodore 64/128

One of Digital Vision's distributors in western Massachusetts (Allegro Tech in Pittsfield) was selling Commodore 64 computers, software, and peripherals in strong numbers, and persuaded us to build a Commodore version of ComputerEyes. This was a pretty easy sell, since the C64 used the same processor as the Apple II, so the software development wouldn't be too intense (even though we expected to sell fewer units than for the Apple II). Allegro Tech also sold the Flexidraw light pen, which was a good complement for embellishing ComputerEyes images.

So the C64 version of ComputerEyes became Digital Vision's second product. It connected to the Commodore computer via a peripheral port located on the side of the Commodore's box.
