The JVC Videosphere is a CRT television model 3240 that was shaped in the form of a UFO space helmet. It was first introduced in 1970 and was sold up until the early-1980s. It was popular for its modern design; the alarm clock base was an option, most units have a plain base. Videospheres were produced in large quantities in white, red, black and orange in the 1970s with a grey colored model also released in the 1980s. The design of the videosphere is said to have been inspired by the film '2001: A Space Odyssey' though the videosphere's shape in itself remains as one of the most iconic examples of the early 1970s design ethos.
The Videosphere in art: TV Buddha is a video sculpture by Nam June Paik first produced in 1974. In the work, a Buddha statue watches an image of itself on a TV screen, a JVC Videosphere. The screen's image is produced by a live video camera trained on the Buddha statue.
