Submitted for your approval, a Smurf-sized "Leadworks Mini Wurlitzer Jukebox" that plays tiny "8-track tapes." It's Thursday afternoon, and I haven't found a "Techmoan" video so far. Instead, here's a "Databits" video about a 1980's "adult toy" that plays endless loop tape cassettes of ONE song, then shuts down. There's yet another "discarded tech" machine in this video, along with links to other items "Databits" has found/fixed/modified over the years. Don't forget to put a coin in the "Wurlitzer," or the "Smurf Jukebox" won't play!
Here's something that "Techmoan" missed, a (sorta) "floppy disc" format to play movies in the 1970's! It's from those West German boffins at Telefunkken, who apparently dug up technology from Thomas Edison's days and dragged it, kicking and screaming, into "the modern world." "Digibits" is an American version of "Techmoan," and, like some mad scientist, makes this decrepit, er, "ahead of it's time" tech back to life. Proceed at your own risk...
