Hendren Octopus "The Weekender"
Who says you can't have everything? In 1983, a certain Mr. Hendren
had the Jones Plastics Company of Kentucky manufacture his All-in-One "device".
It was sold by mail-order only through an Outdoors magazine of the
time. This All-in-One device, appropriately named the "Octopus", turned out
to be a dud due to poor advertising, high price tag, or whatever.
Meanwhile, its manufacturer soon went out of business, and Mr. Hendren
died two years later. One could say that the dud was dead. This device includes
the following components:
110 camera w/ flash
Dual Time Zone LCD clock with:
alarm clock w/ snooze button
storage compartment -- in case you actually need something else!
Maybe it didn't sell well because people thought it could only be used on
the weekend. Who knows? Who cares? This is probably the
largest and heaviest -- but certainly not the most expensive -- 110 camera
