Short info

Change the hair, makeup and accessories of your friends' photos with the Radica Digi Makeover.

Detailed information

A virtual makeover kit for girls, the Digi Makeover has an interactive touch pad and a digital camera which plug directly into the TV via RCA jacks.  It has loads of special effects for clothes, accessories, jewellery, hairstyles and makeup, to add to a girl's digital image taken by the camera, while watching the result on TV.  Images with special effects can be saved.  It also allows girls to pose with their friends in Photo Booth mode.

Advertising Scams

Joe La Rosa remembers fondly an ad from the late 70s or early 80s about some dolled up rabbit ear TV antenna which was supposed to "pull signals right out of the air" - "You don't get cable because you're not paying for cable!"  Sadly, Joe's father fell for it.  Dick doesn't have it in his warehouse, but he still has the AC plug which "makes all the wiring in your house into one gigantic TV antenna!"
