  KoalaPad/Painter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The pad hooked into the computer using the analog signals of the joystick ports (the so-called "paddle" inputs), which meant that it had a fairly low resolution and tended to jostle the cursor if moved during use.
Instead of the drawing stylus, the pad could as easily be operated by the user's fingers for less precision-demanding work, such as selecting between menu items (i.e.
One unique feature of the program, for its time, was that it held two pictures in the computer's memory, allowing the user to flip from one to the other—a function commonly used in order to study the differences between an original and modified picture, and to copy and paste between two different pictures.

The Koala Pad is a graphics tablet which was produced for most of the early 8bit machines, including the Apple II, TRS-80 Color Computer, Commodore 64 and Atari 8-bit family.
The pad itself was 4 inches square, mounted on a slightly inclined base with the back of the pad higher than the front.
The pad hooked into the computer using analog joystick (or "paddle") inputs, which meant that it had fairly low resolution and tended to jostle the cursor as it was moved.

 VAW: Vectronic's Koala Pad
The Koala Pad uses the joystick port to connect to an Apple II.
Unfortunately, the Koala Pad uses a cheap plastic grid pattern insert (not pictured above) to cover the sensor pad, which is itself rather cheap and has a spongy feel to it.
The Koala Pad is a lot of fun and will definitely give your old Apple II a new and interesting functionality.

Brake pads should always be changed when rotors are replaced, and pads or rotors should also always be replaced as an axle set.
Place some specific brake pad lube on each end of the caliper bracket where the funny shape of the pad will rest, install the bracket over the rotor, and place the outboard pad into the bracket.
Make sure this pad is in the right way, don't laugh, I have seen many instances of mechanics, both home and professional, who, in a moment of inattention, managed to install this pad backwards.

The Koala Pad is an input device, like a joystick but it is a flat surface that you use a pointer on.
Keep in mind, a joystick or Koala Pad is NOT considered a REPLACEMENT for a mouse and should NOT be considered where a mouse can be used.
They can be made to fit by slowly sticking it through the round holes, but this is not always the case.

Whilst koalas in the wild typically rest in eucalyptus trees, they are not at all phased by sitting in a tree that is not one of their food species, and it gives our guests some idea on how koalas behave in the wild.
Well, our koalas are free to roam wherever they like within the enclosure, however we keep their food sources (eucalyptus species) on poles situated in the patting area so this encourages them in.

Since the standard Commodore-64 9-pin DIN port is male, it looks like your Koala Pad (with a female plug) is, indeed, intended to work on a C-64, VIC-20, etc. machine.
As to whether or not the C-64 Koala Pad can be used on an Apple II, it looks like, probably, it can, if you can find or build an adapter.
It is based upon the capabilities of the C-64 Game port, time constant capacitor values used in the C-64, and the probability that Koala Pad's makers would not wish to make major design changes between Apple and C-64 models.

 8-Bit Product Reviews: Animation Station / hardware
First the hardware: The Animation Station pad is similar to the Koala pad or the Atari touch pad.
The most important physical difference between the AS and the Koala is that the AS sensor pad is rectangular, like a TV or monitor screen, not square, as with the Koala's sensor pad.
(With a Koala Pad, the cursor disappears when the stylus is not pressing the sensor pad surface.) Because of the way MicroIllustrator works, this makes the AS pad very awkward to use, and tends to leave nasty, unexpected lines between the last place one was drawing and the upper-right corner!

Just like the two consoles before, the Mark III could support the hand-me-down peripherals originally made for the SC-3000, but this new console went far beyond being able to use a keyboard, and such.
When Sega released this console, they opened the flood gates for a number of goodies to be made for it ranging from various racing controllers, to heavy duty gamepads, to a koala pad, and even an audio / video transmitter.
There would be no keyboard, printer, or data recorder support, nor could one use the koala pad, or AV transmitter.
