Did you know that:
AtariSoft games did not use Coleco BIOS calls.
The ColecoVision BIOS was avoided by AtariSoft programmers.
It was slower than using your own code, so it was much easier and/or quicker to just write your own routines.
AtariSoft paid another company to carry out the necessary code.
So, not using ColecoVision's BIOS was insurance that AtariSoft could not be successfully sued by Coleco Industries.
If Coleco had decided to sue Atari for developing and/or publishing ColecoVision games in the 80's without a license, then Atari was more likely to win.

Brian Ciesicki has a plan. He need $17,000 to make a prototype of his idea.
"To confirm, I talked about this to Colecovision and they said they'll make it if I can show a prototype of it working."
The device is a way to turn any old game into an old online game, without reprogramming the game with traditional network methods.
His secret is to use a low-ping connection, like Sprint Direct Connect.
The range is limited, but the limit is pretty big.
"You've got an approximately 2400 km range between the farthest 2 people in a 60 frame/second controller read rate game".
"The range doubles in a 30 FPS game and triples in a 20 FPS game".
