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.

Colorsplash Cameras - Color for a Monochrome World


Colorsplash. The word sounds like something Kodak or Polaroid should have trademarked in the 1970s. What's colorsplashing? Well, imagine a camera that lets you dial-in colored filters to cover the flash. Then imagine that this camera has two shutter modes. In Instant Exposure mode you press the button and the picture gets taken (with flash, of course). The result is a color-shifted image -- like a defective Polaroid.

FurcolorsplashThings get more interesting when you choose the Long Exposure setting. Now, the shutter stays open long as you hold the button and the flash goes off when you release -- moments before the shutter closes. Et voila... Brilliant arty pictures that make you look like you know what you're doing.

Oh, and check out the $85 Colorsplash Ice Bear Edition -- the perfect hybrid of retro technology and pointless marketing.
