Hake’s is selling this wonderful example of mid-Century electronics, the Gilbert Electric Eye. The eye was a sensor that you could use to start and stop any electrical device in your home. This is technology that we take for granted nowadays, but from the 1930s-1950s this was Jetson’s technology for the average consumer.
If you are a vintage electronics collector, you may want to give it a look.
