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.

Todd McLellan Disassembles A Pentax SLR

Pentax-deconstructed

When I was a kid, I loved taking apart electromechanical gadgets to discover their secrets. This was in the dark age before the Internet, when knowledge oozed and dripped like tree sap, rather than flashing around the world at the speed of light.

Todd McLellan takes teardowns to another level by ripping old devices apart and photographing them for his Disassembly series. Now Mr McLellan has splattered his K1000 Pentax Spotmatic F all over a backdrop, just so we can marvel at the sheer effort required to design and assemble one of these apparently simple devices.

This image and others in the series are available as limited edition prints from 20x200.
