Introduced in 1983 by Stimutech. It was a device that could flash subliminal messages on your TV screen as you watched TV. The maker emphasized the ways this could be put to use for self-help (weight-loss, stop smoking, stop drinking, etc.). But they did sell a "Sexual Invitation" program that surreptitiously flashed messages of seduction: "Sex is OK, Let us make love, I am OK, We share sexually, Let us kiss, Let us caress, Let us be naked, We explore bodies, Let us be together.”

It's not creepy at all. It doesn't suggest images of Uncle Pedo inviting his target niece "to watch a little TV". That's just your perverted mind.

Someone clearly had heard of these new-fangled magic home computer thingies, and may even, at one point, have seen a demonstration, but had never actually used one.
