    Found this at a thrift store and am I missing something?
    I never heard of this and thru my research over 3 hours,
    not in a row. Could find nothing on the subject or images.
    Every time I find something unique. Well I think so.
    Always very interested in finding out all I can about item.
    Especially in electronics. As the age, year when produced,
    how long was in production before technology surpassed
    the need for program ect.
    So having said that if anyone could shed some light on
    the topic would that would be great. Thanks
    Also was wondering if this could be counted as a computer
    collectible and would be of interest in that field of collecting.

    Thanks for looking & Best / Dan

      Interesting company - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EG%26G
      "In early 1970, EG & G introduced the Dataplatter, an adaptation of 7 inch (18cm) diameter 45rpm phonograph technology which could store up to 5 megabits (Mb) of data. The reasons for the failure of this innovative technology in the marketplace are unclear, perhaps it was too far ahead of its time, coming five years before the microcomputer".
