The Konix Multisystem and the moving chair was on display at the last Personal Computer World (PCW) show at Earls Court in 1989. I attended the first day of the show expecting to be able to see the seat in action, but it wasn''t working due to technical difficulties. I was told it would be working the next day, but I was only there for the day. I also bought a couple of the MCS controllers in the early 2000''s as it was a great design and it reminded me of this machine that never was. The Konix
reminds me of the SAM (upgraded Spectrum clone) that never took off and the company went bust. :(

Video taped footage of some unfinished games for this unreleased system survives. Could have been a great system judging by the footage.

I actually had one of those MCS controller-only devices. It might be weird but I remember that it came with a obscure, rather bland racing game on a diskette. I would love to hear from someone who still has such a disk, as I cannot find mine anymore. It was just called RACE or something like that, so it probably was only shipped with this controller. If so, it must be one ridiculously rare!

I remember a major write up in a magazine (Videogames and Computer Entertainment?) here in the US in the late 1980's. While all the add-ons and expandability were nifty, I remember a knock against this unit was that it was lacking in a few key technical areas in comparison to the competition. It's not surprising that this concept never made it to market, as it seems the developers cared about cramming every feature possible into the units without concern for getting the core out to the public.

The konix system has never been produced but the molded case was distributed as a regular joystick/wheel for the PC's. As they had paid for the expensive molding tools, they decided to finally use it even on a more simple product. When I saw the first one on ebay, I was dreaming it was a Konix console prototype... Silly me :)
