The black box contains the Mainframe terminal emulation to run n the monitor. It plays Z-Machine text adventure games like Zork form the 70's and 80's as if it were on an old mainframe. The monitor has a second input for full colour input also.

It looks like a totally ordinary Video Monitor that any TV production company would have, but with a raspberry pi glued on the back.

Only it's not a raspberry pi as a RPi doesn't come with a PS/2 port for keyboard.

Sorry to say that, but there weren't this type of terminals in the late 70's and early 80's nor even PS/2 connector that was used only from the late 80's (1987). But then Zork I was oudated... I don't want to
be harsh but even if it's, as you wrote only an evocation, it's really a poor made one :) But it's only my opinion and I said that as I said nothing.
