For all its successes (and failures) over the decades as a mainstream consumer electronics company, Sony has always cultivated an alter ego — a weird place where crazy, off-kilter designs and product ideas have been allowed to come to market, even when they’re anything but a guaranteed commercial success. This is Weird Sony.
To commemorate the launch of Weird Sony’s latest products — the QX10 and QX100 lens cameras — we wanted to take a walk back through some of the most amazing, bizarre, and unlikely devices that the company has ever made. Some have helped shape the industry, some have helped shape Sony, and some have simply come and gone. All, needless to say, are weird.
Edit: Sony is the company that inspired Steve Jobs. They have a long and proud history of pushing boundaries and building quality products. They’re also willing to take risks which means they sometimes get it wrong. Chris Ziegler of the Verge has written a great article listing the some of the weirder products sony has made. It’s well worth a read. Click here to go there now.
