Kuba Komet

This morning I was browsing the web and, when visiting one of my favorite Brazilian websites I came across the fantastic photo above. How cool is that? I was intrigued by its futuristic design and did a quick search on Google to find out more about it. It turns out, the Kuba Komet was manufactured from 1957 to 1962 in West Germany and  was the complete home entertainment center for its time. These and many other interesting information about the Kuba Komet (like that the top part rotates like a sail on a mast!) can be found on this fantastic website about early television. If you want to read more on the Kuba Komet, click here.

I also found a video on YouTube showing the Kuba Komet in great detail. Just click the link below and have fun watching it!
