This might be the most viscerally adorable design I’ve seen since the original iMac (and there’s something of a family resemblance). I really hope Sony puts it into production not because I really want a “little TV that rests in the palm of your hand,” but because it would be a step up for Sony’s consumer designs, which have felt pretty stagnant for the past decade. The little TV is interesting from a tactile standpoint, because it is soft and squeezable (not qualities generally associated with electronics). Functionally, it reduces the distance between itself and the viewer, which allows it to shrink drastically and offer a comparable experience. I admire it when designers totally rethink quotidian activities like this. But it also takes a leap of faith on the corporate side, something I think Sony has not been so good at lately. Though I have been eyeing one of these beauties. Think of all the musique concrète I’ve been not writing by not having one!
