Sony Proto-Walkman as taken on Apollo 11

Recommended Posts

Fascinating Nick!


I saw my first Walkman in 1970


Later I bought a TCD-158 and a TCD-5 pro later


I decided that there was a small market for being able to ust the TCD-5 as a sync recorder

so I designed and built a 50 hZ xtal oscillator board that fitted inside


The recorded casette I could then transfer onto my first Nagra 4.2 and then transferred

to 16mm mag film in the usual way!


Oh well it was interesting!

If you haven't seen the Apollo 11 documentary that just came out a few months ago, it is a fascinating watch.  I highly recommend it!
