"Generally, the human race avoids doing anything radical until forced into it."
- Frederik Pohl

Visual Report Screen  
  A device that allows a robot nanny to let the owners view what the robot sees from a remote location.  

"The Imperator Deluxe, with power-beam focus. Did you want the optional high-velocity grapple lock and the remote-control feedback? At moderate cost, we can equip her with a visual report screen; you can follow the situation from the comfort of your own living room..."
From Nanny, by Philip K. Dick.
Published by Not known in 1955
