I can't access the pics (yahoo says it's over quota) but I used to use
some boxes (think they were 68k based) made by Jupiter as "smart frame
As I recall they basically had rs-232 in and RGB (coax) out. They knew
how to do lots of color drawing primatives into a local frame buffer.
I think the one I used was originally used to do IC layout and was
connected to a VAX (but it was a long time ago).
They may have had a keyboard and joystick also. I only used the frame
buffer to draw teapots :-)
