The Oric 1 and Oric Atmos were computers made by Tangerine Computer Systems in response to the success of the ZX Spectrum.

Though the Oric computers did not match the sales of the Speccy, they did become a big hit in France, where the Oric 1 was the best-selling computer of 1983.

Tangerine's Oric Products International was eventually acquired by French company, Eureka, who went on to produce the Oric Stratos and Oric Telestrat.
