One of the most popular computers in Western Europe in the first half of 80s with good hardware, very nice design and relatively lot of games on cassettes and also for Telestrat diskettes.

Emulation info:

Euphoric - I think the only choice. Because the original site link is broken, I have pointed the link to the Oric.org FTP archive.

This emulation info was written on 17.December 2002. (This time is very important, because emulation info very depends on the time it was written - emulators can improve a lot after this time..).
