Trend Data System (the company that made some very nice paper tape readers
made/sold such a terminal many years ago. There were at least 2 versions, one
did 5 bit ('Baudot', 'Murray' (although it's actually neither),
ITA2..), the other was
a VT100-a-like. The display was LCD which could be folded over the keyboard
when not in use. It needed an external 12V supply (I don't think there was
ever an internal battery version).

It was very close to a real VT100, even the setup options were identical.
