Some news clips and interviews with Rick Dyer demonstrating the Halcyon System during the production and testing phase. Tv news reports on the production of the system during 1983 and 1984.
The Halcyon was groundbreaking for the time (late 1984), featuring voice recognition, speech synthesis and a laserdisc player. The brainchild of Rick Dyer, best known for Dragon's Lair and Space Ace arcade laser games, it was also very expensive. Only a few were sold, with just two games ever released (Thayer's Quest and NFL Football) before the company went bankrupt.
