My brother Carl, who is the world's most discriminating eBay craphound, found this spectacular 1950s tin toy made in Japan. According to the description, "THE PYLON LIGHTS UP WHEN THE MORSE CODE BUTTON IS PRESSED WITH A SOUND."
Still better than North Korean ones!
That thing probably saved a lot of lives. Very cool find.
I want one that prints tweets, displays weather radar, and lights up for Facebook notifications. And I want the dish to go roundy roundy.
The Morse Code button had better make a high-pitched “bee-bee-beep” sound or, you know, fail.
A Raspberry Pi and a small LCD panel would fit quite nicely in that case.
Yeah, but I would feel bad gutting it if it wasn’t already broken. If it worked I would leave well enough alone.
My mam had the Dan Dare version of this.
Calling Monster Island. Calling Monster Island. Come in Minya.
my best friend’s mother makes $74 hourly on the computer. She has been unemployed for 8 months but last month her check was $16000 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more on Jive8.com
One of the rare ones that have not been stepped on by Godzilla. What a find!
That interocitor looks all wrong!
Looks like something Kim Jon Un would use.
While laughing uproariously.
