While working as a computer tech around 89-90 I was asked to install 2-3
of the damnedest things I'd ever seen. They were called Metaphors,
and what was so cool about them was the front panel flipped down under
the screen and out slide a wireless keyboard, wireless mouse and a
keypad. They were GUI based, though for some reason I remember them
being green on black or perhaps white on black monochrome screens.
I set them up and someone else came in to connect them to a Metaphor
server - apparently they needed their own proprietary server.
So needless to say, while putting some stuff away in my office, I had
some of my old notebooks from way back when and while fingering through
the pages I notice - Amex - Metaphor install and remembered these funky
little units - very slim and high tech for their time I have to say.
Anybody own an actual unit and have some photo's?
