More from CES: A Seattle gadget designer

I’ve already had a call from a reader who wants to buy one of the reel-to-reel/cd combo players designed by Chris Hennessey, a Seattle guy I profiled in today’s column. Who would have guessed?

Here’s a photo I took of Hennessey and the device at CES.

Chris Hennessey, a former Seattleite who now designs consumer electronics in Hong Kong, with the reel-to-reel/cd player he displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

On the other side of CES was the Zhongshan Leetac Electronics booth displaying similar retro devices. Leetac also does modern items, like the radio on the right that looks an awful lot like one of those expensive Tivoli units.
