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.

Psychedelic Lava Lamp Offspring

Mathmos_space_projector_1 Mathmos invented the Lava Lamp in 1963. The idea was based upon an egg timer in which a glob of oil rose to the top when sufficiently warm. These days, Mathmos Lighting UK produces an astounding variety of odd lamps.

The Mathmos Space Projector is an idea that belongs in the flick Barbarella. It conjures "constantly moving chaotic images" on walls and ceilings by shining a 20W spot lamp through a color wheel filled with oil. They're available in violet/red, violet/green, and blue/red combinations to suit the mood of the party.

If you drop by their site, be sure to check out the five current Lava Lamp designs, along with their selection of strange squeezable rubber Bubble lamps.

Never thought I'd find myself posting about squeezable rubber. Sigh.
