An example of terminal: the Hi-Muse.

Here’s an interesting gadget/prototype: The Hi-Muse [archive link] is a Hi-Fi product entirely dedicated to audio. It looks like a micro Hi-Fi system with a large touch screen, a CD player, a hard drive and direct access to the Web. It can be connected to your existing audio system or used as a USB or Ethernet peripheral in your computer system.
