The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

[Image: ]
The Concept features an A4 monochrome, high resolution monitor and a very good keyboard for professional work. It really deserves its name: like some modern Radius monitors (and even more modern LCDs and PDAs), the user may rotate the screen 90 degrees to obtain a normal screen. The software and hardware handles the change smoothly. And you thought there actually were new ideas in the computer industry, eh?
