The Copera (ja:コペラ), full name known as Mixt Book Player Copera (ja: ミクストブチE��プレーヤ コペラ) is a clone of the Sega Pico made by Yamaha. It adds various functions to an standard Pico, such as Stereo sound (not sure if applies to the PSG), Karaoke, a FM sound chip (Yamaha YMF262) and two MIDI ports. They also can run their own type of software, called Mixt Books, opposed to the normal "Storywares" of the Pico, however, is possible to run Storyware cartridges on the Copera. These Mixt Books cartridges can run on a normal Pico, but you cannot play them due to the inputs that Copera requires is missing.
