Sony RX100 IV

Sony's RX100 IV might be a compact camera, but it certainly doesn't lack features, especially in the slow motion video department. According to PetaPixel, "Photographer David Candlish got a chance to play with a pre-release RX100 IV yesterday, and he shot the 40x slow motion clip seen above that shows what the RX100 IV is capable of. The camera was handheld and a couple of tabletop LEDs provided lighting. When shooting with the 1000fps feature, 2 seconds of real time becomes a whopping 80 seconds of slow-motion video."

Gaming enthusiasts have probably seen sketches of the fabled console, but now here's a look at a real prototype. In 1988, Sony and Nintendo collaborated on a CD-ROM peripheral for the SNES, but as you know, things never quite worked out. Purportedly, imgur user "DanDiebold" stumbled upon one of the prototypes, and here's his story: "My dad worked for a company, apparently one of the guys he used to work with, I think his name was Olaf, used to work at Nintendo and when my dad's company went bankrupt, my dad found it in a box of 'junk' he was supposed to throw out."

Sony Project Morpheus Prototype

First announced nearly a year ago, Sony's Project Morpheus VR headset made its official debut at the Games Developer Conference 2015 and will hit stores sometime in 2016. One of the main changes in this prototype is a new 5.7" (1920 x 1080 resolution) OLED display, which expands the field of view and enables low persistence, removing motion blur. Also, to make positional tracking more precise, they've added three LEDs to the headset - one on the front and two on the side - for a total of nine LEDs to support robust 360° tracking.

Before portable compact disc players, there was the Sony PS-F5, which is a marvel of engineering to say the least. First sold by Sony in 1983 (prototype unveiled in 1982), it's essentially a small, portable turntable which runs off regular batteries or an external power supply. It plays 7" or 12" records at 45 or 33.3 RPM and most impressively it will do so either laying down or standing up, due to its linear tracking, direct drive and record clamping system. There are also dual headphone sockets so you can listen with a friend or plug it into an amplifier. A nifty swiveling foot arrangement stows in the base of the player. Upon rotating the rubber-covered chrome plated steel feet, they extend out of the front and rear, giving extra stability when standing upright.
