I've seen it on the CeBit two or three years ago. They had a small corner at
MIPS/SGI. There was a demonstration running that looked really impressing, but
I don't know if it was real or only a kind of slideshow. I even took a data
sheet with me, maybe I still have it somewhere.

I'm quite shure that it required VLB. But that's not so important, if I
remember that right, it used the x86 PC only as an I/O subsystem and did
everything else itself. And an old 486 with VLB should be cheap.
