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.

You Too Can Live In A Garbage Spaceship


I have a friend who lives in a spaceshippy kind of house. Seriously. James has seen it, and I've shot a commercial there. It's amazing what a sci-fi look he's been able to achieve using found objects, and the kind of things that anyone can get at a building supply store.

OutsideThis project by Jan Korbes takes the post-apocalyptic sci-fi living concept to the next level. Futuristic aesthetics may just be the coincidental byproduct of building homes out of recycled trash. We're rapidly approaching a point where the world's most bountiful resource may be our refuse, so these designers set to work creating these portable home/office units called "Miele Space Ship MRS II".

Interesting that using a bunch of industrial castoffs and garbage results in a housing design that looks so clean and 2001-ish. How sad that thanks to mankind's careless past, living in a spacey looking house made of recycled materials may be part of everyone's future.
