MUPID, the Mehrzweck Universell Programmierbarer Intelligenter Decoder, was a Z80 machine with 128k RAM from 1982, to plug into a domestic TV and act as a BTX terminal. (Developed for the Austrian Post Office by a Hermann Maurer and a Rheinhard Posch it might after all be named after them.)

In contrast to other Btx terminals , it could also be used as an independent home computer . An external modem was connected to the television set via the Cenelec interface for the connection to the Btx control center.
Anyone seen one of these? Or another smart terminal of this sort?
