No, I was thinking of the latest technology stuff that claims to give
real 3D, something like Star Trek's Holo-deck. I just heard about it
over the grape vine.

Get writing that PDP 10 emulator for LISP :)

I suspect the Oberon FPGA card would make a nice small PDP 10 emulator
as you get a network i/o device.
