Yes, I was aware of this but have never seen one. Do you have one in one of your machines Gavin?

I wish I did :) this image was emailed to me so im not even sure what magazine its from (its not from a google search)

There must have been a handful of small electronic business's developing the odd System-80 project
here in Christchurch, I mean there is this Video/Sound Card and the Tripple Disk Drive unit made in ChCh.

I just popped up the photo in case no one had ever seen or heard of this card, it looks really ambitious. :D
