The Mindset was one of the first dedicated video-processing (plus effects) computers. Released in the mid 1980s, it had a short life in the market due to the fact that it had a closed architecture. Just as the Bay Area-based company was opening the Mindset up it went out of business. The Mindset was supplanted by such systems as the Video Toaster on the Amiga platform as well as the Macintosh. The Mindset was once included in a museum of modern art for its case design. The Mindset was one of the few commercial computers that used bubble memory cartridges for stored programs.
Thanks Robert Furber for your donation of this Mindset and Larry Shaw of the Exploratorium for donations of two other Mindsets.
