The Amiga Walker, sometimes incorrectly known as the Mind Walker, is a prototype of an Amiga computer developed and shown by Amiga Technologies in late 1995/early 1996. The last real Amiga was planned as a replacement for the A1200 with a faster CPU, better expansion capabilities and a built-in CD-ROM. The Walker was never released; Escom and Amiga Technologies went bankrupt, and only two prototypes were made.
The case is unique and radically different from computers before it. The intention was also to make the motherboard available without the case so users could put it into a standard PC case. There were a number of other potential case designs of different sizes, the Walker motherboard could fit all of them; this allowed for expandability tailored to the user's requirements.
Despite Amiga Technologies' bravery in producing an innovative case, it did not get a very good reception. Comparisons were made with vacuum cleaners, Darth Vader's helmet and even Doctor Who's electronic dog K-9.
