I assume he meant to link to www.predicta.com which used to be the homepage of Telstar that made reproductions Looks like the domain has been sold to a new company.

They show up for sale now and then. Telstar did a very good job from what I've seen although the necks were longer then the originals. I wish they had sold the repro parts so we could replace the cracked, warped and foggy old protective screens.

I believe they were well over a grand when new. The used ones seem to go for around $500 - $1,000.

You can still access some of the old site via the Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.predicta.com/

Sounds like something you would see in a Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.

I'm surprised that The Sharper Image has not come up with one at the time.Are they still around.

The public is now afraid of CRT sets as the MSM brainwashed the public over how bad they were.

I can also add Brookstone.They can easily sell repro Predictas at their Casino locations My sister got a set of wireless speakers there and they sound just as great as Bose.At BJs and other stores they had that little antique TV Christmas decoration there for about $50 bucks. I should of grab one and fit it with a B/W CRT that fits and actually play old Christmas videos on it.
