Another card with an LCD! And detachable even!
Why did this trend not catch on? It's beautiful.

Intel basically killed this off with the original pentium processor as The VESA Local Bus relied heavily on the Intel 80486 CPU's memory bus design.When the Pentium processor arrived there were major differences in its bus design, and was not easily adaptable to a VESA Local Bus implementation. Few Pentium motherboards with VLB slots were ever made. Also moving the bus to non-x86 architectures was nearly impossible.
I'm starting to remember Local Bus now. Didn't last long and I guess I never actually saw a card.
I would have remembered that funky connector.
