I just saw a movie called The Final Cut where there was a company called EYE Tech that put implants into people's brains to record what they see and hear.

Anyone know if this was a part of an entire business liquidation of assets or just Eyetch dumping related Amiga items?

Hmmm, I am not sure if this is good news or bad news.....certainly good news for AmigaKit and us cutomers.......as Eyetech seemed kind of distant.

But I didnt know that they were TRULY out of business for good.............that really sucks!

That part is bad news for Amiga.

I think Amiga Inc should have at least purchased their chip manufacturing plant so that Amiga can start making their own computers again.

Anyone know the proper name for Eyetech.  I've checked Companies House in the UK and Eyetech Group Ltd, look as if they are still in business.

A few other Eyetechs have been "dissolved" but I dunno if they are the right Eyetech or not.

No need to worry about that. Afaik Eyetech have produced hardware of any intrest for Amiga users only for classics. They never did have any big manufacturing plants for A1, they bought slightly modified and rebadged motherboard from outside producer.

And most (all?) of that hardware is just re-badged hardware from other manufacturers.
