Lot 32: Regency TR-1 - The World's First Commercially Produced Transistor Radio 24cm high x 7.5cm wide x 2.2cm deep

In July 1954 IDEA had been approached by Texas Instruments (TI) to mass produce a pocket sized radio using their newly developed geranium transistors. These miniature solid-state amplifiers required far less power than the bulky valves used in radios up to this point. Chicago industrial design company Painter, Teague & Petertil were employed to design the case. The first TR-1s were produced in time for 1954 Christmas market and, ultimately more than 100,000 were manufactured.
