Wow, Spock has a strange talking space rock that explains the advantages of the Magnavision video disc player. I remember hearing that Nimoy doesn't like talking about his role in the animated Transformers movie from the 80s. Actually, he says he doesn't remember anything about the movie. I have to wonder if he's more embarrassed by this promotion.
How much did they pay Nimoy?
What is crazy about this machine is that this was the precursor to DVDs back in 1978. That's right, 1978. It is interesting to see that this technology has been around for ages. And, having Spock promote your product is just cool.
One thing that is worth noting is how big the damn thing was. However, it looks just about the same size as the First Xbox system.
