1979 Sony released the Sony Walkman TPS-L2. Designer Andrew Kim has a wonderful write up talking about the design and engineering quirks that made this device so wonderful. Mind blown, it brought back some memories.
After reading this article I felt a bit old that I remember most of this. With age comes wisdom, but maybe it could be confused with nostalgia. My parents probably felt they same why when they were explaining the 8-Track to me.
Back to the article, Andrew pointed out a very unique feature and I found it awesome:

So many memories with my walkman, my personal audio device. I don't remember my first walkman but I do remember my last one. It was the model WM-EX5 and it was so beautiful, small and unique.
Just look at how beautiful that is... wish I had my hands on one now....
Guess I am getting old.
