IIRC, it required a NOS driver to make it work, and it wasn’t simply a matter of showing the Newton’s screen on a VGA, but I don’t remember clearly. I guess it’d be technically possible to follow a similar route to achieve this.

I own a number of EZ2VGA cards and that's exactly how they worked. In fact, the EZ2VGA was a simpler version of the EZ2TV card, which output VGA, composite, and S-Video. The NOS driver package was called EZShowCard.
