Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

Super #1 Robot

Robotbook

Super #1 Robot is a tour de force look at Japanese Super Robot toys between 1972 and 1982. The book offers 22 snappy pages of interesting and informative text by robot toy megafan Matt Alt and collector Robert Duban. The remaining 232 pages are chock-full of brilliant color photography by Houston-based photographer Tim Brisko.

The authors make no attempt to catalog every model released over the decade. Instead, they provide an essential overview of what they see as the best toys of a rocket-fisted, mechanically transforming era. This is five-star eye candy.
