The moment we thought that the technology equipment that our forefathers used have been dead and buried long ago, that is the time that you and I are being greeted with the news that a company known as Funai Corp somewhere in faraway Japan is still manufacturing and selling Video Cassette Recorders.
At the mention of video cassette recorder at this point, we are easily thrown into reminiscence as it makes us look back down the memory lane when we are all growing up as children and the time that VCR was a hit back to back in many homes.
And the popular inscription then on the VCR labels which still lingers in our memory is the VHS, which stands for Video Home System.
The VCR is the piece of technology that was developed in the 50’s and came into limelight in the 70’s and 80’s but today it is surprising to hear that Funai Corp company is still manufacturing and selling VCR.

If you think that nobody is buying the VCR again in this era you should think again, because last year, Funai Corp is said to have sold about 750,000 of VCR units worldwide, which though as expected is a massive decline from millions of sales that is used to be recorded in the far past.
But do you know what?
Funai Corp is the last standing company still doing that and it all seems that they are even tired of the technology as they gear up towards putting an end to the manufacture of VCRs by the end of this month in what they hinged at difficulty in obtaining parts.
Since the news was brought to us that a company still manufactures VCR in this era, let it not also be a surprise the day you will wake up and hear that a company out there is still retailing the gramophone!
