Ever wonder why the Microsoft Xbox Series X / S look the way they do? Well, according to principal designer Chris Kujawski the tower-like structure was so the team could retain a compact form factor for all of the next-generation hardware. As for the PlayStation 5, Sony President Jim Ryan stated that the aesthetics are intended to be “transformational in how they look, sound, and feel”. What if you were to combine both into a hybrid game console? Designer Ismail Mits gives us an idea of such a device.
For those unfamiliar with the Sony Vision-S, it’s essentially an all-electric sedan concept with components from Magna International, Continental AG, Elektrobit and Benteler / Bosch. Boasting always-on connectivity, complete with 33 sensors that include CMOS, solid state LiDAR, radar and time-of-flight cameras, which together, form an advanced driver assistance suite called “Safety Cocoon”. Step inside, and you’ll find a panoramic touchscreen integrated directly into the dashboard, paired with Sony’s 360 Reality Audio.
Be very careful when purchasing any video game console online, especially the hottest item of the year. That’s right, we’re talking about the Sony PlayStation 5. One man from Utah decided that $878 was a fair price to pay for the sold out console on eBay, but little did he know that inside what appeared to be a real box was a concrete block instead. The auction site has a buyer protection guarantee, so this person will be receiving a refund.
The holidays are just around the corner, and what better way to get in the festive mood than with a cheesecake? Not just any cheesecake, the Philly Series 5 pokes fun at Sony’s newly released console. This kit comes with a specially designed pan that mimics the PlayStation 5, and includes all the key ingredients you need to bake a cheesecake. Not only does it have a delicious flavor, but the food creation itself is something to marvel at.

Back in 2010, Sony Ericsson had initially planned to release an Xperia VAIO SE 123 mobile phone with a 5.5-inch display and a hinged slide-out keyboard. Fortunately, at least one of the prototypes have surfaced and might have given similar devices a run for their money at the time. This was before the company released the first Android-based VAIO smartphone in 2015, but since this is a prototype, the device runs Android 2.1 Eclair.
