TBT: Laserdisc Edition

So the brood has been watching old re-runs of Watch Mr. Wizard..both the ones from the 1950s and 1960s and the Nickelodeon ones from the 1980s, filmed in the Great White North.

With that being said, YouTube’s AI suggested we watch this one. It features Mr. Wizard talking about how the Pioneer Laserdisc player works.

Pretty cool demo.  I assume that modern day DVDs work in a similar manner just much, much smaller.

But after this, YouTube prompted another video…this time with Leonard Nimoy  pitching a competing platform from Magnavox.

What group they use to pitch the space-age technology…wait for it…
ABBA!

Enjoy this edition of Throw Back Thursday!
