JVC Videosphere

Videosphere was a JVC CRT television that was shaped in the form of a spherical space helmet. It was first introduced in 1970, and was sold into the early-1980s. The 1970s models came in white, black, red and orange, while a grey model was introduced in the 1980s. The design, inspired by 2001: A Space Oddysey is nearly iconic now and the unit is very much a collectors item.

I want one in orange.
