"For this design project, TV sets were chosen as the product category. In 1962, Sony introduced the "micro TV," the world's smallest and lightest portable set at the time. It was the moment transistors redefined television in our lives.

Designers also sought TV sets that were so cute and appealing, people would want to hold them in their hand as they watched."
