The first home VCR circa 1963

Hard to even think about VCRs in today's world, but there was a time when they were the height of technology. Behold the Telcan: a fixed-head  videotape recorder,  intended for use in home-taping of television programs. The recorder, mounted on the top of a television cabinet, used quarter-inch tape running at 120 ips past fixed heads, carrying two 15-minute tracks. Smokin' hot!
