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.

A Personal Hovercraft For The Masses


Thirty years ago, I was a science-crazed kid. Fast-forward three decades and I'm still disappointed that we don't have the flying cars promised in the glossy pages of Popular Science. Sure, we have tiny supercomputers that fit in our back pockets, but actually taking them anywhere usually requires the use of a lumbering 4-wheeler that's at the mercy of traffic lights and an army of diligent law enforcement officials.

A Hoverjet GT might just be the solution. Its 60 hp two-cycle Rotax engine is capable of propelling the machine up to 70 mph on smooth ice or 40 mph on calm water. The GT is capable of endless dizzying 360 degree turns on land, ice or water, while carrying a pair of freedom-loving passengers in open air luxury (hearing protection optional but recommended).

The vehicle includes modern amenities such as electric start, a four rudder steering system, Hypalon® coated skirts and stainless steel skirt anchors, a 16" windshield and replaceable hardened aluminum skid rails. The only things that might make this machine more appealing are cup holders and a gun rack. The price? A mere $13,995.
