Casio Quick Dialer QD-100 Calculator
Here's a weird product. It's a phone dialer.
I don't have the manual so I am still not sure how to input the phone numbers into the calculator.
But once you do, you go to "TEL" mode and, press dial. The calculator will emit the right tones to dial the phone number for you. Just like McGuyver did in that one episode where he's trapped and has a phone line but no phone. So he rigs something to emit tones and calls for help. I tried to find out which episode this is, but McGuyver got trapped in almost every episode that searching for "trapped" didn't help...
Or where McGuyver secretly records some guy from far away and manages to dial the exact same number using the recorded dial tone. (Apparently that one is from Season: 6 Episode: 11)
You just put that large speaker next to your phone and dial the stored number.
Do people still have PHONES anymore?
This little gadget is the perfect marriage of ultra rare and completely worthless. I have never seen any information about this one on the web, and I don't think anybody will waste their time describing one if they had a website.
