Go to the Panasonic Online Design Museum right now

There are many amazing items up at Panasonic’s Online Design Museum. Gizmodo likes this curiously modern-looking bracelet:

It’s definitely the stand-out, but I like this record player even more:

    I’ve always liked Panasonic.
    Probably going back to “The Miracle of Ambience Sound” boombox days of the 80′s.

    I adored mine, and mourned when the tape transport finally failed.
    I carried that stupid thing and about fifty cassettes around with me all the time.

    …I remember both of these quite well, as I had both of them. The Radio I ended up retiring in favor of a quadrophonic AM/FM Stereo unit that lasted me 25 years before it finally gave up the tubes. The SL-10 I sold to a collector about a year after I’d finally abandoned vinyl and switched to CDs around 1996. Panasonic made great stuff in their day, and it’s a shame they don’t make wild designs like this anymore.

    - and the SL-10 linear tracking turntable above is a beauty! It even sounded good!

    i had one of those bracelet radio things–but in yellow. as i recall it was too big and heavy to be a bracelet (at least for me as a young child) but it was easy to lug.

    I totally remember that twist radio.
