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.

LEDhead: Classic Handheld Electronic Game Re-Creations

Mattel Football

LEDhead is a software simulation of twelve classic Mattel LED games from the 1970s and 1980s. It was created by Peter Hirschberg, who contributed several brilliant images to my upcoming book (including the one featured here).

Peter re-drew the artwork and reverse engineered the game play to make these as faithful to the originals as possible. I owned the Canadian version of Hockey until one fateful day in early 1982, when I decided to take it apart to see how it worked. This is the best way to experience these classics without spending thousands of dollars to acquire them from a collector.

LEDhead is available for Windows, Palm OS, and Pocket PC
