The Last VCRs Ever Will Be Made This Month…

There’s a company in Japan called Funai, and they’re the last company left in the world still producing VCRs. They make them in China, then ship them off to be sold under other brand names, like Sanyo.

Well, they just announced they’re going to stop producing them by the end of this month. And believe it or not, they sold 750,000 of ’em last year . . . but they still think it’s time to move on.

Remeber when VCR’s were over $200? I do. Hey – this was cutting edge technology!
