    I almost forgot the 3DO video game system. If you blinked you probably missed it. My cousins bragged about that thing and ended up trading it in for a used Playstation game!

    I was one of the two people who had one. In defense, my parents bought it not me. Had a printer for it and an Adapter so it'd play Atari 2600 catridges. Don't think we ever used the computer part,

    I read an article a few years back as to where there were still people make games for the Vectrex.

    I also saw a Babylon 5 special where they said they made all the special effects for the show on an Amiga. I remember reading a few years back that a company bought the rights to the Amiga to make parts because there were
    still companies using it for special effects. Apparently it was quite ahead of it's time but it never found a profitable consumer niche.

    The Amiga was way ahead of its time - multitasking OS when the best available was Win 3.1 otherwise, pretty much. Hardware-accellerated video and audio, etc etc etc,

    A commercial product called the Video Toaster allowed all sorts of state-of-the-art video effects to be done on-the-cheap using an Amiga. Very popular, relatively speaking.

    All very true - a shame we haven't progressed much since the late 80's.

    Even the short-lived Atari ST 5xx series was ahead of the power curve. I guess being "first" or "best" doesn't always equate to success.
