In 1979, SONY debuted the WALKMAN®, introducing to the world a new way to enjoy high-quality music, anywhere, anytime. To celebrate the WALKMAN 40th anniversary, SONY has opened an exhibition in Tokyo’s Ginza district. The “#009 WALKMAN IN THE PARK 40 years since the day the music walked” exhibition focuses on the people for whom the WALKMAN has been a part of their everyday life. 

For us old enough to not only remember, but also used, the SONY WALKMAN®, this portable cassette player was the “thing” in the 80s. I had a red SONY WALKMAN® which I bought in 1985 or 1986 and I used it till it broke… I really like that SONY celebrate the WALKMAN 40th anniversary. That makes me truly nostalgic and happy.

A new ‘intelligent turntable’ that allows record collectors to play vinyl directly from their smartphone is currently in the works. It promises music fans, ‘the intimacy of vinyl with modern day convenience’ and it ‘reads vinyl with a stylus, connects to bluetooth and wi-fi, and is controlled by your smartphone’. Designed by Yves Béhar, the sculptural-spinning object is capturing peoples’ imaginations with its unorthodox playing style — rather than the record traditionally turning on a platter, the technology literally puts a spin on vinyl.
