Just saw a “smart” water bottle that also had a built-in speaker at the bottom and a phone dock on the side - sorry; once again, no photos. I assume that the only practical use would be to have it sit on your desk.

Frighteningly, I remember that very catalog. I remember thinking the “Children’s Discovery System” was pretty neat, despite our family already having an actual computer far more powerful. I guess I thought the portability was neat.

I’m pretty sure I bought a fair amount of stuff from him, though I can’t remember what. He’s still around (or his company is, I think he’s retired), selling audio products that are mainly pretty marginal, though he had a budget phono preamp that was not bad for the money.

I think I tried to order an early thermal printer from them for my C64, and I never got it. Constant back orders. I almost think I never got my money back, either.
