The VOXSON T1228 OYSTER is A truly amazing example of design crazyness toghether with Invention, technology,engineering and fun.
This is the "Tellye bag" / Television Bag / the VOXSON T1228 OYSTER a Collapsible portable tv B/W television with 12 inches screen and 7 programs preselection with potentiometric tunig search with hide push buttons types.The use of voltage-variable diode-capacitors, such as varactor diodes, permits the electronic tuning of radio receivers and television receivers by the use of DC control voltages; so that the tuning elements no longer need to be intimately associated with the tuner. Thus, the tuned circuits of the tv receivers may be located remotely from the devices used to provide the necessary DC tuning voltages. In addition, the compact size of the voltage-variable diode-capacitor tuning circuits makes it desirable to use such tuning circuits in many tv applications which formerly used mechanically adjusted variable capacitors or the like as the tuning elements.
To employ voltage-variable diode capacitors in pushbutton tvs, however, especially in multiband pushbutton tv sets , a problem exists in providing a "memory," so that operation of a pushbutton will provide consistent tuning of the tv receiver to the station which is to be selected by that pushbutton. In addition it is necessary to provide some means for providing the initial tuning of the tv receiver for each pushbutton location in a manner which is reliable and inexpensive.
The televison VOXSON T1228 can be closed itself like a voyage bag and opened like a book when in use.
It has even 2 incorporated antennas and can be supplyed from mains and a 12volt source.Recently, it has become more popular than ever to watch TV in a car as the number of cars increases. In general, a storage battery of 12 volts is used in small cars while one of 24 volts is used in large cars so that there is a disadvantage that a separate power supply device is required for driving a TV set in compliance with the respective battery used in the car. The present invention relates to a power supply circuit of a television receiver used in an automobile, and in particular to a power supply circuit of a television receiver which enables two different voltages from two kinds of supply respectively mains at 220v and dc 12v.
This set was designed by an italian designer Rodolfo Bonetto in 1973.
This is definitely the coolest television set from the 1970s Panton Eames era. A real SPACE AGE design classic, to be seen in important design museums worldwide and featured in all good books about 20th century design.
This unique tv looks really awesome with its stunning folding cubic design. You can fold this cube to open up the screen and the controls. For transportation you can fold it up. 100% vintage object from the 1970s, made in Italy. (Today no modern crap can stay up in front of this tellye)
(Milan 1929-1991) designer. Began his activity in 1958 operating in the durable consumer goods sector and industrial goods sector in various fields: from domestic appliances to bathroom fittings, automobiles, musical instruments, radios and airplane instrumentation panels. “A cultured factory worker”, as V. Gregotti described him, he successfully managed to combine a thorough understanding of production technologies and materials with ergonomic considerations and a very ethical attitude to formal research. He taught at the Hochschule für Gestaltung of Ulm (1961-1965), and has been awarded six Compasso d’Oro for objects such as the Sfericlock alarm clock (Veglia Borletti, 1963); the O.C.N. numerical control machine tool (Olivetti, 1967); the automatic microfilm apparatus (BCM, 1970); the interior for the 131 Supermiriafiori (Fiat, 1978). Between 1972 and 1975 with N. Matsunaga, he designed the tooling centre Horizon 2 (Olivetti) up to the Wiz multi-purpose generator. Creator of the Fire engine (1984) for Fiat, the Rotor, public telephone for Sip (1989) and the mechanism for automatic gate opening Cross 6 (Novotecnica), he has been a member of national and international juries and president of Ic sid from 1981 to 1983. Bonetto is the only Italian designer never to have put his name to architectural projects, as he was always solely interested in large-scale production. After his death, he was dedicated the Compasso d’Oro 1991 as a tribute to his overall activity, which now continues with the Bonetto Design Studio, run by his son Marco, who, in 1994, founded the Bonetto Design Centre in Montecarlo dedicated to his father’s memory, a centre for ideas and services for the new areas of design.

Rodolfo Bonetto had his first meeting with Raimondo Guzzini in 1967, as is shown by an entry in the records in which Bonetto used to carefully note down all his working relationships. He designed for the Fratelli Guzzini until 1971 and up to 1986 for iGuzzini illuminazione.
VOXSON was an Italian manufacturer site in Rome in Italy.
It was founded in 1952 by the engineer Arnaldo Piccinini with the name FARET, which stays for Fabbrica Apparecchi Radio e Televisione S.p.A..
The activity begun with radio and television fabrication factory.
It have had almost an immediate success on the market and at the end of the 1950's it have great penetration in the market with lot of sales even in extra market such as Germany.
With some unclear involvements in the 1980's VOXSON was sinking , and with classics Italian industry destroy style it was treatened like a tennis ball between that and this guy and mate; and all of this degraded rapidly the original identity of this industry.
Today VOXSON is selling LCD crap like many others with parts coming from there and there.
The destiny of such industry seems all around the same.
