DVD Rewinder
image This is a step beyond the online DVD rewinding service that I reported on back in February. That worked via the CD tray of your computer, but this new home DVD Rewinder from 1783 Productions sits on your desk and whirres, flashes, and spins. The blurb about it says: "assure that you never again have to pay another DVD Rewind fee! This novelty, created by 1783, spins discs backwards while playing a customizable "rewind" sound and flashes lights. The DVD Rewinder even has a USB port for MP3 and other external digital media. In tech colors, flourescent green and black, the DVD Rewinder provides great fun and lots of interesting conversation."

This marvelous innovation only goes to show that necessity is the mother of invention.

We bought one of these as a joke for my VERY redneck father in law for Christmas...he actually used it a few times before my husband told him he really didn't need to (snikers)

damo:

Just put your disk under a pyramid with a quartz crystal on top of it, and the the DVD will rewind itself.

Gee:
Huh?
