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

eBay: Canine Music Synth From The USSR


I have no idea why this vintage Russian toy synthesizer features French cartoon character "Pif le chien," but I suspect it has something to do with his adorably socialist outlook on life. Or perhaps it is to disguise the fact that the front panel of this little analog synth is embarrassingly sparse.

It features a built-in speaker and line out. No MIDI, no programs, no display, and a mere 24 keys. It runs off 9VDC. How does it sound, you ask? Awful [mp3], but in a very cool way.
