  • Product Design ICR-9

World's first radio thinner than 10 mm, by a millimeter. This pocket-sized unit was nicknamed the "Milli Q". Designers also made the radio light, at 99 g. New technology was lavished on the "Milli Q", including a 6 mm-thin samarium cobalt speaker, 6 mm-thin variable condenser, 8 mm-thin PCB, and a coil measuring 55 mm. Controls are positioned on the top and side, and the front is dominated by a speaker grill of punched metal. The result: a face that is appealingly simple.
