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.

Build Your Own Pong Game

Pong_1Atari's Pong started the home video game craze in 1976. The unit featured two paddles and a bouncing square "ball." The object was to keep things bouncing back and forth. Kinda like a good date.

Electronics kit maker Velleman has created a Classic TV game kit that lets you build a modernized version of Pong. As you can see, the graphics are black & white and extremely rudimentary, but that's part of its charm. The kit features single and two player modes, so you can include your significant other in your latest electronic obsession. Simple though it is, I find myself wanting to build one into an old upright arcade case.
