Buddy Holly's first recording (he was 13 years old)

It was made in 1949 using a wire recorder.

The wonder isn't that the quality isn't great, but rather that it exists at all.

Memo Pad Reveals Architectural Sculpture As You Use It

Excavate-top

That's different.

From websites:

Prepare to have your sloppy childhood attempts at stick figure flip book animation completely blown out of the water.

Japanese company Triad is the creator of Omoshiro Blocks ("fun blocks"), memo pads that slowly reveal an architectural treasure with the removal of each page.

Memo-2-640x480@2x

Through the use of precision laser-cutting, Omoshiro Blocks allow the user to pen notes on more than 100 pretty sheets of colored paper while simultaneously unearthing stunningly detailed 3D structures that are unique to each pad, such as miniature paper replicas of historic sites like the Buddhist Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto, the Tokyo Tower, and Sensō-ji.

Along with the architectural designs, there are also intricate cutouts of people, cameras, musical instruments, flowers, boats, and trains.

The excavation-inspired memo pads currently go for between 4,000 and 10,000 yen ($36 and $90 US).

Memo-6

$46.99.
