I could give a talk about Jef Raskin's M68000-based "Canon Cat".

It's an unusual computer and interesting computer released in 1987. Perhaps it gives us a glimpse into a possible future of human-computer interaction. The most striking feature of the Canon Cat its lack of any software application;  instead it consists of a single document with all functionality provided at OS-level. There are some other interesting points too such as the embedded Forth compiler, an assembly language, a novel file system, incremental search...

Does this appeal to anyone?
