Well, well, what do we have here? Why, it’s the world’s first wireless television remote control! The, “Flash-matic”, was invented right here in Chicago by Zenith Electronics engineer Eugene Polley in 1955.
There are literally endless jokes, quips and guffaws about ‘men and their remotes’; however, one need only take a glance at the above picture to see a lovely lady using the fantastic Flash-matic in a technique that can only be described as, ‘precision-like’.
Quite frankly, I can see an uncanny resemblance between the Flash-matic and a travel hair dyer! Coincidence? There is a chance, but it’s ‘remote’!!!
