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.

Truly Tiny Houses

ElemenoThe Tumbleweed Tiny House Company makes impressively small homes. We're not talking semi-detached or bungalow starter houses - these abodes are barely larger than a garden shed.

Jay Shafer has been making and living in little houses since 1997. He says "My decision to inhabit just 100 square feet arose from some concerns I had about the impact a larger house would have on the environment, and because I just do not want to maintain a lot of unused or unusable space. ... Since completing the construction of my first house, I have continued to make little buildings. How each house gets used depends on its occupant’s particular needs. What one person would enjoy as a quiet studio in their backyard, another couple might choose to inhabit as a full-time residence."

Shafer's designs start at a mere 40 square feet (3.7 square meters) and range up to the whimsically named B-52, which tops out at 500 square feet  (46 square meters). His site is worth a visit -- if only to make you aware of what's possible in so little space. Prices range from $15K to $40K.
