Hello NeXT Community: I'm posting this one for one of our new forum members Henry , he picked up an ultra cool NeXT 3rd party board and thought maybe someone here might have a clue what it is. I uploaded 2 high resolution images to the website and hopefully they will display:

Looks like one of the prototyping boards with someone's project on it!

Yeah, that's the NeXTBus development board. Perfectly sized to fit in the NeXT Cube with accomidation for a variety of ports to be soldered to the back.

Unfortunately most if not all development potential for devices attached to the bus is lost as the NBIC is missing, which reduces it to a fancy PCB that's powered by the bus and has extremely limited bus support.

Edited: Just going to leave these here.
