You're looking at the height of TV technology from the 1950s. Perhaps the most kitsch, retro object you've seen in a long time, the Kuba Komet was the 84-inch 4K flatscreen of its day -- and just as expensive.
Manufactured in Germany between 1957 to 1962, this thing's giant, pointy, swivelling case conceals 8 speakers along with a record player, a radio, and a TV tuner in the bottom cabinet. There was also, apparently, an option to include one of the first ever tape recorders -- and even a remote control.
It was over 1.5m tall, weighed 140kg, and had a giant price tag to match. New, it cost around £625. In 1957. That makes the £20,000 Sony 4K TV seem about right on the money. [No Pattern Required via Retronaut via BoingBoing]
