came in several colors including red , yellow , white , blue , and avocado green . Soviet clone of this radio is called Saratov, named after the city where it was manufactured. While being similar externally, it is fully different internally. It is a nine-transistor TRF receiver with transformerless audio amplifier, while the prototype is a six-transistor superheterodyne, and its audio amplifier uses transformers. The clone has no chain, but has metal ring between ball halves instead

VHS
The VIDEO HOME SYSTEM (VHS) is a standard for consumer-level analog video recording on tape cassettes . Developed by Victor Company of Japan (JVC) in the early 1970s, it was released in Japan in late 1976 and in the United States in early 1977. From the 1950s, magnetic tape video recording became a major contributor to the television industry, via the first commercialized video tape recorders (VTRs). At that time, the devices were used only in expensive professional environments such as television studios and medical imaging (fluoroscopy ). In the 1970s, videotape entered home use, creating the home video industry and changing the economics of the television and movie businesses. The television industry viewed videocassette recorders (VCRs) as having the power to disrupt their business, while television users viewed the VCR as the means to take control of their hobby. In the 1970s and early 1980s, there was a format war in the home video industry

Blue
BLUE is the colour between violet and green on the spectrum of visible light . Human eyes perceive blue when observing light with a wavelength between 450 and 495 nanometres . Blues with a higher frequency and thus a shorter wavelength appear more violet, while those with a lower frequency and a longer wavelength gradually appear more green. Pure blue, in the middle, has a wavelength of 470 nanometres. In painting and traditional colour theory , blue is one of the three primary colours of pigments, along with red and yellow, which can be mixed to form a wide gamut of colours. Red and blue mixed together form violet, blue and yellow together form green. Blue is also a primary colour in the RGB colour model , used to create all the colours on the screen of a television or computer monitor

Radio
RADIO is the technology of using radio waves to carry information, such as sound, by systematically modulating properties of electromagnetic energy waves transmitted through space, such as their amplitude , frequency , phase , or pulse width . When radio waves strike an electrical conductor , the oscillating fields induce an alternating current in the conductor. The information in the waves can be extracted and transformed back into its original form. Radio
Radio
systems need a transmitter to modulate (change) some property of the energy produced to impress a signal on it, for example using amplitude modulation or angle modulation (which can be frequency modulation or phase modulation ). Radio
Radio
systems also need an antenna to convert electric currents into radio waves , and radio waves into an electric current. An antenna can be used for both transmitting and receiving

Hospi
HOPSI is a hospital delivery robot manufactured by Panasonic . HOSPI service robots were originally developed to be used in healthcare, delivering drugs around hospitals . It was launched in 2004, but since then Panasonic managed to sell only two robots. At IREX in 2013, Panasonic introduced a new version of the robot and began to conduct hospital trials of it. Those trials were declared successful and Panasonic began to sell the robots. HOSPI move autonomously through the pre-installed mapping information within them.It is installed with an on-board sensor that helps it to move around avoiding obstacles, and stop if a person suddenly runs in front of it. In January 2017, HOPSI was started to be used by the hotel Crown Plaza Ana Narita Hotel and Narita International Airport in Japan for serving drinks and clearing the tables

Green
GREEN is the color between blue and yellow on the visible spectrum . It is evoked by light which has a dominant wavelength of roughly 495–570 nm . In subtractive color systems, used in painting and color printing, it is created by a combination of yellow and blue, or yellow and cyan ; in the RGB color model
RGB color model
, used on television and computer screens, it is one of the additive primary colors , along with red and blue, which are mixed in different combinations to create all other colors. By far the largest contributor to green in nature is chlorophyll , the chemical by which plants photosynthesize and convert sunlight into chemical energy. Many creatures have adapted to their green environments by taking on a green hue themselves as camouflage . Several minerals have a green color, including the emerald , which is colored green by its chromium content

AM Broadcasting
AM BROADCASTING is a radio broadcasting technology, which employs amplitude modulation (AM) transmissions. It was the first method developed for making audio radio transmissions, and is still used worldwide, primarily for medium wave (also known as "AM band") transmissions, but also on the longwave and shortwave radio bands. The earliest experimental AM transmissions were begun in the early 1900s. However, widespread AM broadcasting

Yellow
YELLOW is the color between green and orange on the spectrum of visible light. It is evoked by light with a predominant wavelength of roughly 570–590 nm . In traditional color theory, used in painting, and in the subtractive color system, used in color printing, yellow is a primary color . In the RGB color model , used to create colors on television and computer screens, yellow is a secondary color made by combining red and green at equal intensity. The word yellow comes from the Old English geolu, geolwe (oblique case ), meaning "yellow, yellowish", derived from the Proto-Germanic word gelwaz "yellow". It has the same Indo-European base, gʰel-, as the words gold and yell, or "cry out."

Panasonic JR-200
The PANASONIC JR-200U (PANASONIC PERSONAL COMPUTER (PPC)) was a simple, relatively early (1983), 8-bit home computer with a chiclet keyboard somewhat similar to the VTech Laser 200 . Made of silver grey plastic it had a black matte area around the keyboard area. Most of the 63 rubber chicklet keys were grey, with some (the more important) keys in marine blue, and with white control and break keys. Each of the grey keys could produce any of five inputs: Upper and lower-case letters (or numbers and symbols), two graphic characters (similar to the graphic symbols of PETSCII
PETSCII
), and a BASIC

keyword. Two keys, ALPHA and GRAPH, are used to switch back and forth between character and graphics modes. Holding down the CONTROL key while pressing any grey key produced a Basic keyword. In total the JR-200 had 253 built-in characters
