History was made when the first in-flight movie was screened over Chicago in 1921. But it wasn’t until 1939 that passengers were treated to the first in-flight TV. What was playing on the boob-tube in the sky? Live footage of their own plane, oddly enough.
Today Cory Doctorow tweeted out a fascinating image showing an RCA computer room in 1959. I can’t stop staring at it.
In July 1959, the magazine Look ran an article describing the “miracle kitchen” of the future, ostensibly about the amazing advances that Americans would see in their own homes. In reality, it was part of a much larger propaganda battle of the Cold War–and it involved a proto-roomba.
Wouldn't it be grand if you could just plop your smartphone down on a speaker dock and not have to worry about attaching an adapter cable, connecting to a wireless network, or firing up Bluetooth and pairing both devices? RCA has done away with all that hassle with its new SoundFlow alarm clock that simply requires…
In an ideal world, there'd be no surge protectors choked with chargers, or knots of cables behind bookshelves. This USB wall plate charger from RCA is an elegant solution to the madness around your wall outlets, and it doesn't require an engineering degree to install.
While this might have the guts an old RCA 13" TV, it's why you can see said guts that makes it so special. Because it's for prisoners. And everyone wants to watch TV like a prisoner, right?
Forget PowerMats and wireless charging and the like, because the Airnergy wi-fi signal harvester is my new front runner for the future of gadget charging.
Old school consoles, like the RCA Studio II, with this horrendous controller had an excuse to suck—they didn't know any better. But there's really no excuse for the Virtual Boy. Technologizer rounds up 15 such gaming abominations.
While RCA debuted their Small Wonder camcorders at CES 2008, the model they are showing off just a year later looks vastly improved.
While universal remotes can be hard to program, each being a bit of their own beast, theRCA Voice Control Remote will talk you through the process. And you can talk right back.
Ever since the world caught wind of the Pure Digital Flip cam's success, super-cheap digital pocket camcorders have sprouted up everywhere. With everyone and their mother trying to become the next Lil Show Stoppa or Soulja Girl, people need a cheap and easy way to capture those magic moments. I tested six of these…
RCA was nice enough to sit down with us and justify one of our favorite pointless car modifications of all time: an LCD screen on the lower trim/bumper of a car. I mean, seriously? Shooting/Editing by Eric Sheline.
The Pitch: RCA is releasing four new models its super-simple Small Wonder video cameras, including one that shoots in 720p HD. Other models include smaller and more rugged versions designed for YouTube uploaders on the go, all for pretty reasonably prices. The Catch: Just because a camera can shoot HD resolution…
Last night we showed you the finished look of the RCA DTA800, one of the "digital switchover" converter boxes your stubborn granny can buy early next year with her $40 coupon from the government, in lieu of getting a new goddamn TV. The CES folks have praised the other box too, a Zenith-branded DTT900…
We kinda forgot all about this little box for old folks with old TVs that was announced way back at CES and promised by the end of this year. It's got a fresh paint job and later street date (January), dropping a little more than a year before analog broadcasts shutdown in 2009 in favor of all-digital broadcasts,…
We just got our fingerprints all over the strangely enticing RCA Jet Stream: a sporty, rubber edged MP3 player with a pair of wireless headphones that sound surprisingly pristine.
