Sony GV-500 Portable VCR
Long before DVD players, there was the Sony GV-500 Video Walkman, an 8mm portable VCR that could have easily been stored in a backpack. It was officially touted as an video recorder with an LCD that allowed users to watch TV programs and video tapes anywhere. Featuring a menu function for six items, Hi-Fi stereo, a TV tuner, timer-activated recording, a sleep timer, and a MEGA BASS circuit for dynamic bass sound.

Sure, the Sony Xperia 1 IV smartphone could run just about any video, but it’s definitely not as cool as watching a movie on the GV-500. Aside from using 8mm video format cassettes, it records in both SP and LP modes, with the latter not be as good for playback in terms of picture quality. Want to get one yourself? Most recently, a used GV-500 with box sold for $175 USD on eBay.
