It is a network-connected Keyboard-Video-Mouse device, made with a Raspberry

In other words, no matter what state some other computer is in (turned off,
running fine, stuck at a Grub prompt, stuck in the Bios with "Keyboard error,
press F1 to continue", or whatever), then if you have one of these connected
to it, this thing has power and an Internet connection, you can then work on
the other machine as though you were sitting in front of it with a keyboard
and a screen.


I have an excellent memory.
I can't think of a single thing I've forgotten.
