PC.GR TECHDAY 1 July Release of Walkman

On this TECHDAY in history, in 1979, the first Walkman was released by Sony. The first portable cassette player, derived from a Sony journalist’s cassette recorder, was modified by removing the recording circuit and loudspeaker, and replacing them with the stereo amplifier. This prototype originated from an idea by Sony co-founder Akio Morita, who wanted a portable music device for his overseas airplane travels.
