It's time to say R.I.P. to the V.C.R.

The world's last video cassette recorder will be manufactured this month. That's according to Japan's Funai Electric. The company claims to be the only V.C.R. manufacturer left.

Funai first started manufacturing V.C.R.'s in 1983 and at one time was selling 15 million units a year.

Last year, Funai says it sold only 750,000 units and found it was getting harder to find the parts to make them.
