RCA Selectavision Movie Player Commercial


I remember seeing my first Selectavision player at my friend’s house and puzzling over it. How does it play a movie? Why is it so shiny? Why are there grooves? With HD movies fitting on tiny discs nowadays, it all seems to quaint by comparison. Still, I do wish we had more mechanical switches to flip with today’s tech. Something about the tactile sensation of flipping a switch that I miss.

Added: I just posted a bid for a working Selectavision LD player on ebay. Wish me luck.
