CD format and the dubbeltje -a fun fact
on: May 17, 2019, 13:17:50
Fun fact about the compact disc.

Quote
During the design phase of the compact disc at Philips, they had a meeting about the size of the center hole. Joop Sinjou, head of Philips audio products, grabbed a Dutch 10 cent coin (known as a 'dubbeltje') and placed it on the table and decided that it should be that size. And to this very day, optical disks like CD-ROMS, DVDS and Blu-rays still have the same 15 mm hole since the release of the original CD in 1982.
