Sony's first product was it's first failure.

Article by Nick Broughall | Gizmodo

Japan had conceded defeat in World War II, Sony founder Masaru Ibuka invented a product to try and serve the millions of homes who had electricity but lacked the appliances to use it. The result was this electric rice cooker.
 
Released under the business name Tokyo Telecommunications Research Institute, before Sony itself became an incorporated company, the rice cooker was little more than some aluminum electrodes on the bottom of a wooden bucket. Depending on the unregulated electric current at the time, the kind of rice or how much water was used, the rice generally ended up served as overcooked mush or undercooked grain.
 
Because of this, the product was never actually released onto the market. Instead, a prototype now sits ensconced in glass at the Sony Archives in Shinagawa, a relic from a distant age before electronic gadgets were the norm.

The World's First Commercial VCR

Article By James Grahame

The world's first practical videotape recorder was released in 1956. It was as large as a dining room table and cost a cool $50G. The Ampex VRX-1000 featured an incredibly modern-sounding model number, too.

Ampex discovered that the secret to recording video on tape was to use a rotating head. This enabled them to fit 90 minutes onto a single reel, making the VTR practical for TV broadcast use. The tape ran past the head at 15 inches per second, so those reels must have been huge! They obviously hit on the right approach: Modern VHS and dv recorders still use a rotating head mechanism. 

(trivia: The man standing third from the right is Ray Dolby who later founded Dolby Labs.)

What makes Bose SoundLink so great?

Different omnidirectional speakers use different speaker driver designs to distribute their audio equally — although not always — in a 360-degree pattern around the speaker. Bose's is the most straightforward and coincidentally the best; a single downward-firing full-range transducer blasts all that audio towards the base of the Revolve, where a carefully designed "acoustic deflector", otherwise known as a fancy chunk of plastic, funnels that sound evenly across the frequency range out over the area around the speaker. There are also two passive radiators that sit above the driver, absorbing excess vibrations and resonating at a lower frequency, adding bass.

The Best Drone For Beginners.

One of the easiest features of DJI Spark is TapFly, which lets you just tap at a location on the screen and the drone flies there itself. You don't have to worry about controls or hitting obstacles because the drone takes care of all of that for you. In fact, it's barely like "flying" a drone at all, but rather just deciding what you want to happen and delegating the actual work to the cameras and software.
