Polaroid... who?

Ah, the cautionary tale of the Polaroid Corporation.

They got a $909 mill payout from Kodak which propelled them into... well, not into the stratosphere but bankruptcy in 2001. You can't really blame them for thinking that the biggest profit centre was the Legal Department and cutting back on the costly innovation!

It's nice to see that they still around - in name - to produce, errm, a gadget.

What a collection:-)

Thanks for this. Gadget collections like this always also show a bit where we are all going.

I like to see the watch almost as a statement compared to the coming almight A-watch and the vessel as a reference to our interest in what we are already doing to keep ourselves alive, just in order to play the puzzle at the end:-)

Two Nixie tubes—a forty-year-old technology

Nice wristwatch, but nixies were used in the mid 1950's.
