The Price For A Videophone in 1955 Was $44,000 Adjusted for Inflation

“We’ve been imagining a future of ubiquitous videophones for over a century. And today it’s considered no big deal that we’re able to make video calls with devices that we carry around in our pockets. But it took a while to get to that point. One reason? It was incredibly expensive.”

Interesting article, but I think there were many more reasons.  Video did not have bandwidth, and it was more frustrating than it was useful.  But cost was certainly a challenge as well!
