The Tandy Memorex Visual Information System, the VIS, was one of the many failed CD-based multimedia platforms of the early 90s. It was released in 1992 and was essentially a consolised PC sporting an Intel 286 processor, a single speed CD-ROM drive, 1MB of RAM, a decent sound-card, an equally decent VGA graphics adapter and a special version of Windows 3.1. Not surprisingly, it wasn't the greatest gaming machine possible -I do believe the CDTV was actually better- and was a huge flop. Huge enough to remain incredibly obscure -and I suppose rare- to this very day.
Having never seen one on eBay before, I can't really tell how expensive it's going to end up being, but I'm pretty sure taking a look at this Tandy Memorex VIS auction will definitely be worth your time. It sports a fully functional VIS console, the obligatory wireless controller and 28 games/multimedia titles. Among them you'll find only a handful of well know games such as Links and The Manhole, and a ton of titles like Great Lives, Wild Animals and Kid Fun. Seller ships only within the United States.
