The Consumer Technology Association -- the folks who stage the annual CES in Vegas -- is planning to mark June's 50th anniversary of the first CES. They're hunting for any of the products below (to borrow for a New York event) that would have been introduced at that first CES.

Got any of these? Drop me a line:

• The Contessa Y962H stereo console
• The Seville Y966DE stereo console
• The Manchester Y968M stereo console

RCA (A-201A, A201B)

Philco-Ford (A-202)

Ad in Show Daily: "3-D color TV that let's you see around corners – holographic TV – will be quite common by 1999. So will color telephones, electronic education systems and electronic organs that let you play a full orchestra. The home entertainment business is going to look very different just 32 years from now, and so is the appliance business. Big-selling items will be meal programmers, sonic-wave cleaners and micro-wave ovens."
