My school still uses laserdiscs, especially for Physics videos. The size of them is ridiculous, no wonder they went out of style so quickly. I remember back in middle school when I first saw a laserdisc in class, my teacher said, "Look kids, this is the FUTURE of video." I can't help but look back and laugh at him.

Your teacher was right. It was the future of video. Not a long future, not an illustrious one, but at some point it was the future. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Digitized video on discs was very much the future.  It just got miniaturized (like everything else) into the DVD and Blu-Ray.  Digitizing in general still is the future - only the medium changes.

I seem to have been mistaken.... THE MOVIES I SAW WERE VIDEODISCS not LASERDISCS!


Those things look fascinating! (They are played like a regular record! (Needle,etc))

Ah yes, I had a huge collection of CED disks in the day.  I still have some 30 to 40 of them stored away somewhere.  I fired up the CED player not too long ago and it still worked fine.
