Sony’s first ever product
When it was founded in May 7, 1946 the first product of Sony was not a Walkman, A VCR or a television but it was an electric rice cooker. Brainchild of Ibuka one of the co-founder the electric rice cooker was made by merely interlocking aluminum electrodes which were connected to the bottom of a wooden tub, was a primitive product. The result depended heavily on the kind of rice used and the weight of the water. Tasty rice was a rarity, as the rice cooker produced mostly undercooked or overcooked rice.
