Sony Walkman Eat Your Heart Out! Is This The First Ever Personal Portable Radio?

When Sony invented the Walkman in 1979 the way we listen to music changed for ever, now we can listen to music on the go.

Well it seems Sony were 31 years behind the times… Meet Mr Newman, he invented the first portable radio that he used to listen to music while riding his bike.

The fact that this made the news and was shown in cinemas around the world goes to show how different the world is today.

Today we just plug headphones into our mobile phones and go, but for Mr Newman it was a little more clunky but still very ingenious when you think this was only 3 years after the second world war.

Watch Mr Newman as he rides his bike and whistles to work.

Please share if you love Mr Newman and his crazy pre Walkman invention.
