Tim : you would only need the tape once

davidf2281 : I love how so much of Tomorrow's World was just complete and utter bollocks.

Paul Potter : That was pretty amazing for its time.

JonnyInfinite : God, I haven't been asked for directions for years....I almost miss it

Tavy Hintz : Awesome invention, I want that! Is it still produced? I bet the instructions are on CD now :)

Davey R : My Satnav is on 8 Track.

Crazy Jay : Britain leads the world again

Nathan A : God dam the creation of GPS its designed to irritate the driver

Joojoo Jurrila : A clever invention, but obviously not very practical. A map was more versatile than this.

Andy Jarman : A cassette of tape no less! That'll show Jonny foreigner a clean set heels I'll be bound! I trust they'll be selecting a voice with better diction for the production model.

twphotographic : The equipment is now at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, Hampshire

Robbie Crosbie : You would need a boot full of tapes lol

Midi Play Box : I will ask Techmoan to demonstrate this!

Geert365 : Haha (seems i laughed at the end).

HalfAnon : MAPS, ever heard of them???

Betaman : “Cassette Of Tape”

pigknickers : "cassette of tape" - I like it!

Mai Nem : Just wow! As long as there's no diversions, this works even better than modern SatNav ... you get much more detailed instructions "turn right just before McDonalds into Eddington Road" etc. I like how they cleverly linked the distance travelled to the car's mileometer.

Simir Johnson : Witchcraft! Stay clear from this devils work.

Ravedaze : Do we have to drive a VW Beetle to make this work?.... I’m sold 😃

Nibbles hussey : I wonder why this was recorded in black and white? Didn't they have new fangled futuristic colour by 1971?

Javier Garcia Alvarez : What have we here, laddie? Mysterious scribblings? A secret code? No! Poems, no less! Poems, everybody! The laddie reckons himself a poet!

kevlandy : Michael Rodd!

Stephen o malley : Easily get you home from the pub pissed lol

Ex Sparky : Great a glove box full of cassettes ....

Gino Foto : Navigation without a satellite system would be fully feasible today, it would be enough to mark all roads with plenty of sensors, this world need GPS backup anyway.

Paul Westwood : Tomorrows World in 1971 still in black & white?

blood mapedit : That's terrific! For the future I envision some kind of silvery miniature elpee that can store 150 minutes of speech in mono, so no need for heeps of cassettes or winding anymore|!.

Green Apple : ha ha ha

Paul martin : Is that Alan Partridge's dad?

Drama Alert : Ideas comes today, Reality becomes tomorrow.

BennyB5555 : When rich Americans are spending “hundreds” of dollars on their cars! LOL (Try everyone spending thousands these days)
