TALKING DUMMIES ADVERTISE GOODS (Aug, 1933)
TALKING DUMMIES ADVERTISE GOODS
Talking dummies, with human voices that draw a crowd’s attention, have been devised for advertising purposes by a Brooklyn, N. Y., technician. The voice is supplied by a loudspeaker, connected to a hidden microphone or a phonograph pick-up. Some of the dummies represent persons prominent in public and industrial life. Thus the phonograph voice of a well-known automobile manufacturer may talk of his car’s merits.
