Inspired by the intimate relationship between Voiculescu's noncommutative probability theory (of type A) and large-N matrix models in physics, we look for physical models related to noncommutative probability theory of type B. These turn out to be fermionic matrix-vector models at the double large-N limit. In the context of string theory, they describe different orbifolded string worldsheets with boundaries. Their critical exponents coincide with that of ordinary string worldsheets, but their renormalised tree-level one-boundary amplitudes differ.
