Happy Birthday Sony! Yes, it all began on May 7th, 1946. Wow, 67 years ago! That’s a long time! Just think about all the really cool, exciting and innovative products, for consumers and for professionals that Sony has created over the past 67 years.
Does anyone remember the first product Sony ever made? Nope…..it wasn’t the Walkman®!
Hmmmm…… I bet you wouldn’t have guessed a rice cooker. But yes, Sony’s first product was an electronic rice cooker.
Sony has made many leaps and bounds as a leader in the electronics industry over the past 67 years. So, join me on a stroll down memory lane of some of my favorite Sony products.
Sony’s first electronics product: the TR-55 Transistor Radio in 1955!
In 1981, Sony demonstrated the world’s first High Definition Video System for TV and motion picture production.
The first 4K projector designed for commercial movie theaters.
The F65 motion picture with an 8K image sensor.
I hope you have enjoyed the stroll down memory lane as much as I did!
It’s amazing how much the technology in electronics has changed over the past 67 years, wouldn’t you agree?
So why not wish Sony a Happy Birthday yourself by sharing a photo or 2 of your favorite Sony products!
