Would you believe it but the Video Cassette Recorder (VCR) is about to be faded out. The last VCR in Japan will be produced by the end of this month, according to the Nikkei newspaper. Funai Electric has been producing VHS-playing VCRs for 33 years, most recently in China for Sanyo. But last year it only sold a limited number of units, way down from a peak of 15 million a year, and has been finding it difficult to source the necessary parts to continue production.
