First sold in 1983, the Sony PS-F5 is a stylish marvel of engineering, due to its small, portable turntable that runs off regular batteries or an external power supply. You can play either 7" or 12" records at 45 / 33.3 RPM either in a standing or laying position, thanks to a linear tracking, direct drive, along with a record clamping system. You'll also find dual headphone jacks, as well as a swiveling foot arrangement, which stows in the base of the player. When you rotate the rubber-covered chrome plated steel feet, they extend out of the front and rear, giving extra stability when standing upright.

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."

In 1988, Sony and Nintendo collaborated on a CD-ROM peripheral for the SNES, but as you know, things never quite worked out.

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.
