VK100 -- I think "Gigi" was the codename that snuck out. Some vague
memory says that it came out of the education producs group at DEC.

It looks like a fat VT100 keyboard with a video connection coming out
the back.

It's a very crude graphics terminal -- implements an early version of
ReGis (a DEC proprietary graphics protocol). It has color -- so long
as you only want a few (I think it had about 8).

A VT125 is a vastly superior graphics terminal -- that should give you
some idea...
