The Sega-Vision… in 1977!?

Back in 2009 I wrote an article at SEGA Memories about a little known piece of hardware from SEGA known as the Sega-Vision. Patented in 1977, the Sega-Vision was a big screen projection TV sold to consumers. Since writing the article, a reader named Chris shared something I had never seen before: a TV commercial for the Sega-vision! So let us revisit this unique article covering an interesting moment in SEGA’s past, and take a look at the commercial, hosted by LA Dodger Steve Garvey! I wonder if Steve still has a Sega-Vision?

    You know the Garv has kept his in near-mint condition!

  4. Bottom right of the unit (on the speaker) you can sort of see the logo. Probably matches the one seen at the end of the commercial.

    I found this Price is Right episode from 1977 that shows the Sega of America Projection TV. http://youtu.be/t_BWBL8yjlo?t=20m40s

    Looks pretty cool! Show’s how much it would have cost too.
