Vintage Geek: Keracolor Sphere TVs

There's no denying the fact that we live in a time of flat screen televisions. In fact, a recent trip to my local Best Buy proved that you can only buy flat screens in their stores these days. Clearly, that was not always the case. In 1968, a British man named Arthur Bracegirdle designed the Keracolor television, the world’s first perfectly spherical TV made from fibreglass. While they probably wouldn't be the ideal set to hook up your TiVo or DVR to, I think they'd bring a little funk to any retro-mod living room.

The company closed in 1977, but Born Rich alerts me that they are back in production and being made from the same shells. The new Keracolor Sphere TV (see image below) combines a retro look and contemporary technology. The sets are small (they come in 20 and 25 inches) and cost about $3,000.
