Bask in the glow of over-bright phosphors that flash on and slowly fade away. Customize the screen’s curvature, colors, and transparency. Slow the bit-rate to a crawl.
Watch the strange dance of beam desyncs and shifting colors. Turn up the noise, jitter, and flicker to add a realistic warmth.
Disregard thirty years of GUI advancement by immersing yourself in full-screen mode. Impress curious onlookers at internet cafes.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
It seems kind of dumb to pay $20 for this when xterm will do it for free. Except for the distortion part, although I bet there’s a package for that too.
Very nice to watch ASCII Star Wars on, with this command:
