Can you recognize this technology of 1966?

Guess what these gadgets and machines would do!

Technology sure has changed over the years. Most of the following items are probably in your pocket right now — or at least orderable through the device in your pocket.

Of course, some machines just are not used as much anymore.

We gathered some advertisements for cutting edge technology. Well, it was cutting edge in 1966. See if you can guess what everything is!

The only one I got wrong was number 1. Are you sure it’s not a toaster oven? A lot of knobs and a very brown turkey🦃

About question #2--what in the world are camera fashes? I was born in 1962 and I know a flash bulb when I see one, but camera fashes...?

Before the flash cube, there were single bulb flashes. Had to insert a new bulb for every flash photo. Cheaper than the rechargeable flash attachment.

I probably took this before but it is fun trying to reboot my memory.

13/15. Okay, technically an answering machine is a tape recorder (just not necessarily the other way around), so 13.5.

Missed #'s 1 & 3. We never had a microwave in our home until the '80s. My first encounter with a microwave was in a college apartment in the late '70s. But in both of those instances, they were smaller and usually had a "wood" facade. I went back and forth for several minutes on the recorder. I ended up hitting the answering machine accidentally even after I noticed some of the words on it like MIC for a microphone jack. There were lots of dead giveaways written on the devices.

Now, if anyone at MeTV is reading these. Could you PLEASE let us know the brand names of the things you show us. For example...# 5 the "Front of a car". For us car junkies who can't quite place the make and model, you are LEAVING US HANGING. I thought it might be an AMC Barracuda. But no. I tried an image search on Google and Bing. No luck. When you do quizzes like could you PLEASE give us MORE than a vague description?
