I'll add a postscript to my bit on Wupro disinterest.

Exxon went into the WP business briefly by purchasing Vydec along with
Qyx.  Nobody seems to remember those either.

Who collects old FAX machines, for example?

FWIW, on eBay, there's an Exxon Verbex voice recognition box that seems
to have garnered little interest.  Lear Siegler licensed the technology,
but I don't know what they did with it.

Bottom line is that you'll very often find these business-related bits
of hardware in old warehouse detritus.  It seems that unless someone
used a system while in school or can play games with it, there's no
interest, no matter how groundbreaking the technology.
