According to the sub-head, the answer to your question is yes. It's a two-sided, flat tube color TV.

I don't think this TV ever made it to market. Information from the 1966 Popular Mechanics identifies Intertel a Los Angeles company as the maker of this Color TV set that measured 10'x6"x3.5" and would sell for $200, or about $1,707 today, the also had a B&W 9"x4.5"x2.5" that would sell for $150 or $1,00 today.
From the original story "The Intertel sets are unique in several ways other than the use of the flat tube. The me, the most fascinating feature of all is that the picture can be viewed from either side, of the tube. Of course, it appears in reverse on the back side"

The Original Popular Mechanic story identifies the maker as Intertel of Los Angeles CA. In the story they indicate both a color set measuring 10x6x3.5 inches, and B&W measuring 9x4.5x2.25 inches were planned with the color selling for $200 and B&W for $150, or $1,700 & 1300 dollars today. From the 1966 story "The me the most fascinating feature of all is that the picture can be viewed from either side of the tube, of course it appears in reverse on the back side"

I forgot to add that I don't think it ever made it to market.

Sorry for the double post but the first didn't seem to work.

> also had a B&W 9"x4.5"x2.5" that would sell for $150 or $1,00 today.

You had it right the first time.
