'A compact to help milady powder her nose? That's what it looks like, but it's actually a model of a tiny colour TV set. It's one of the eight projected 'set of the seventies' as foreseen by the RCA Advanced Design Centre in New York. The pocket-book size TV set is among the many startlingly small products being developed through the new micro-miniturisation proces. The potentialities of the proces are such that this battery-powered TV receiver could easily include a stereophonic radio unit'.
