The Mikiphone: Precursor to the i-pod?

YouTube Preview Image

a€oeThe Swiss Mikiphone, circa 1930, is probably the best of all the miniature gramophones produced in the first half of the twentieth century. The folding pocket gramophone when closed resembles a large pocket watch. All the parts apart from the winding handle are stored inside the case which when closed has a diameter of just 4.5a€A (11.5 cm) by under 2a€A thick (4.7 cm). The turntable is only just over 4a€A in diameter (10.4 cm) and the records are held in place with a push on clamp. The celluloid a€horna€™ is in two parts and is also stored within the case.a€A
