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.

80's Shutter Shades Are Back

Shutter shades

Here's a photo from an 80's party I went to a while back.  I didn't have much time to get ready, so I simply dug out a Tom Selleck wig and mustache kit (I wish I were kidding...), and a pair of shutter sunglasses that I still had from the 80's.  I guess Kanye West saw how good these specs looked on me, and so has adopted them for his "Glow in the Dark" tour.  I'm a fashion maven... it happens.

shutter shadesMen's fashion is usually pretty samey from year to year, and I've said before that I miss the part of the 80's where guys were trying to look like spacemen.  Apparently the futuristic look is back for the boys with shiny fabrics, crazy neon colored patterns, and impractical eyewear like these shutter specs (when is someone going to finally make my 20+ year dream come true, and create a set of these that actually open and close like window shades?).

If you don't want all of us futurists leaving you behind, you can pick up a pair of aviator-style shutter glasses at Urban Outfitters, or click below to find your own set on Ebay.  Just don't be too mad if some giant R&B stars spies you at a party and then totally cops your look.
