Ikarus system on Mac

I watched a DVD on Jim RIMMER, Type design in the 21 Century, put out by P22, and got intrigued by the Ikarus system he used, looks like OS 8 or such.

I cast on Ludlow, have a decent collection, but also have the equipment to cut mats and have cut mats for Ludlow to suit my needs.

Anybody has an idea if a system is out there?

My son, a recent transplant to Portland OR, alerted his type-geek dad to the C.C. Stern Type Foundry, a volunteer-run working museum, offering public programs to preserve the craft of type casting, and to educate and inspire a new generation of printers and students of printing history.

Here are some photos he took at their open house on March 26, 2011:
