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.

Robot erector sets

RobotEvery evil Empress needs an army of drones to do her bidding.  I learned that early in my dating career.  These days, your neighborhood royalty will most likely build a mechanized force to dominate their suburban enclave.  Lynxmotion offers a mind-boggling array of robot kits, parts, and software to facilitate the construction of the cyber-army of your dreams. 

I was originally browsing their site in search of a cool robot arm (don't ask), but was quickly distracted by the humanoid biped you see here.  Apparently, he's built from odds-and-sods available in their servo erector set.  They have dozens of cool kits: bipeds, quadrapods, and hexapods.  No tripods, though. 

A kind warning to those of you at work:  this is the type of site you could get lost in for the afternoon.  There.  Consider yourself suitably chastised.  Surf on!
