Panasonic started life in Osaka Japan in 1918 when Konosuke Matsushita invented a two socket light bulb that he sold from his own house. In 1923 came a new type of bicycle lamp and was followed by the development of the first radio just 8 years later. The first Panasonic television was launched in 1935, an area of production that has since proved immensely successful.
