This week’s warehouse gadget is another “Viewer Video of the Week!”
Learn how to submit your own video at the bottom of this column.
Back in 1999 Jasen from Dayton, Ohio needed a digital camera with unlimited memory. His choices were few back then, but he decided on the Sony Digital Mavica FD-73 because it had unlimited memory. How so? It recorded digital images on floppy discs!
Here are the amazing specs on this camera:
And our producer, Jason Howell, has a Sony Digital Mavica story too!
When I moved to SF in 1998, my first job here was for a company called Metro Rent and part of my job was walking around the city snapping digital photos with these floppy disk cameras taking pictures of rental buildings. My first digital camera experience.
Here's what we're looking for:
Your home made Videos -- two to three minutes long - in the any of the following categories:
I bought a piece of crap! Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.
I Invented This! Do you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions.
My Gadget Warehouse! Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.
Post them on YouTube and send our producer, Jason, the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long. Low production value is fine. Even welcomed; so our stuff doesn't look too bad by comparison. We've set the bar low. Don't trip over it.
