I actually disagree with a couple of these, especially if the solution involves a RaspPi

* SD Card ... this would only sort-of be like TPDD2. The SD card isn't really removeable when Linux is booted because it contains the Linux filesystem.

* Model T Powered ... again, not so much. It should have it's own 120 power connection * System Bus Port. The system bus connection a different form factor for the different models, and the M100 has a fragile DIP connector. My design for TDock used / uses the LPT port (and then provides a replacement "pass-thru" LPT port on the TDock PCB to connect a real printer).

So let’s help Josh theorize,  what should the  Dock have? :-)

  * SD Card (TPPD2 alternative)
  * RTC (for FAT support)
  * WiFi (networking)
  * VGA (use an HDMI adapter if needed)
  * Keyboard PS/2 (in case of broken main keyboard, personal need)
  * USB for power and OTG
  * Sound (beyond just a buzzer)
  * Model T powered on 100, 102 and 200
  * Ribbon cable or direct plug in to the System Bus Port

    I'm quite interested in what amounts to a M102 docking station.
    Not that it matters much since I probably won't find time to work
    on (or even theorize about) such a project any time soon. But I'm
    super willing to join on to any team willing to attempt it :)
