Screw the Apple Watch, get yourself a Captain America wrist radio!

Spider-Man wrist radio

It’s unclear how a transistor radio fits in with school supplies (really, what scholar is complete without a Thor portfolio tucked under his or her arm?), unless Marvel is encouraging daydreaming and truancy. But who’s to complain? If you were a child of the 1970s you might have been lucky enough to have either a Captain America or Spider-Man transistor radio attached to your wrist, one that could receive AM signals up to 200 yards away from the station. Truly a halcyon age of pixies and rainbows — Apple Watch, eat your heart out.

    Imagine how much one of those would be worth today. In good company condition.
