Wrist Information Center.

In the 1980s there was a catalog parody of the LL Bean catalog. It was a book called "Items from Our Catalog" and featured a lot of weird things.

When I was in college, I took interest in one of the things called "Find-the-Function" Wrist Information Center. I photocopied the page and had it on my bulletin board in my dorm.

I don't recall the reason why I picked this item, of everything in the catalog. It was a pretty weird product.

A quick read of the product description, and all I could think about the Apple Watch. Here's a scan copy of the document, complete with tape and all...

You can find the "Items from Our Catalog" book on eBay and Use Bookstores, it makes for a funny read.
