The world's first and only video game console to use a real vector monitor just like several arcade games had in the late 70s and early 80s. It came with a game built into the system, called Mine Storm, a clone of Atari's Asteroids.

MineStorm Overlay


  • It was the first console to have a startup screen.
  • The monitor has focus, horizontal, vertical, etc adjustment knobs inside.
  • Since it is a real black & white vector monitor, it can be used with vector arcade PCBs like Asteroids with the help of an XY driver board.
