The BoXer motherboards were shown at several shows between 1997 and 2001 but only physical boards, never working. The InsideOut website (does it still exist?) said that while the board existed it never worked.

When it comes to the BoXer and the InsideOut, no-one except the developer ever owned any one. Non of them ever were demonstrated working. No-one since has ever come forward with one. Non have ever been sold on auction sites.

Vaporware, they effectively never existed. Not even as working prototypes.

Are these the supposed BoXer culprits or rather bundle failures

I must have sold over 1000 of the "Alien Boxer" PC cases during my years working for Microdirect in Manchester while I was at University.
