One of the first portable TVs from Motorola dates all the way back to 1949 and has a cute little round screen.

The Kuba Komet (1960) was a German model of TV with fantastic triangular cabinet, built-in radio, record player, 8 speakers, and many other optional features for a hefty price tag. The estimated cost for this cabinet was around $1,260 back then, which would be more than $10,000 in today’s money! This giant set would look amazing in a modern living room.
