Sony Summons Nostalgia In Latest Showplace Exhibit

Hands-on exhibit displays new and old products side-by-side 3/16/2017 11:15:00 AM Eastern

Sony has opened its newest interactive exhibit at Sony Square NYC, and it’s meant to appeal to both futurists and nostalgia lovers alike.  

The Innovation & Design exhibit, said to highlight the evolution of technology through the company’s products, will have over 30 devices for attendees to play with. These include the original 1979 Walkman and the 2016 NW-WM1Z high-res portable music player, as well as the first consumer Mavica camera and current α7 series. 

Gamers can try their hands at PlayStation, PS2, PS3 3, PS4 and PlayStation VR consoles, and Sony’s  AIBO and QRIO entertainment robots will also be on display.  

The exhibit will also have Sony’s latest Bravia 4K flagship TVs.

Select products will be available for sale. 

Steven Fuld, corporate marketing senior VP, Sony Corporation of America, said in a statement: "This exhibit, which appeals to both technofiles and those interested in design, exemplifies the creative and innovative spirit of Sony. When Sony was founded, it was built on the spirit to ‘create what has never been done before.’ I believe this exhibit clearly demonstrates how Sony has achieved that goal over and over.”

Sony Square NYC is located at 25 Madison Avenue and is open to the public Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  The company opened the showroom last year.
