Frankenbuckey

An internal project at Apple which combined a keyboard and screen cover for a MessagePad 2000 or MessagePad 2100 device.

There were reportedly two versions of the Frankenbuckey, also referred to as an “Integrated Accessories Investigation” by the third party industrial design firm working with Apple. One was an enclosure with a built-in keyboard that held the Newton device and the other design replaced the standard screen cover with one that integrated a keyboard.
