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.

Super 8 Projection: More Fun Than A Big-Screen TV

S8projectors

One of the most enjoyable things about Super 8 technology is projecting your movie masterpieces. If you're lucky, you can pick up a decent Super 8 projector for a few hundred dollars. You'll need an editor/viewer as well so you can edit your masterpiece before showing it to your wildly enthusiastic friends (I find that it really helps if they appear in your movies. If that's not possible, ply them with lots of liquor prior to the show).

You can project onto a blank wall, or even show your film on a garage door or outside wall if you'd like to get your neighbors involved. Remember that Kodak no longer manufactures sound film, so chances are your masterpiece will be silent. If you're feeling really adventurous, you can record a soundtrack on CD and synchronize it with your film by eye/ear. If not, just crank up the stereo with a few tunes that fit the on-screen action.

Projectors are heavy to ship, so it makes the most sense to purchase them locally from vintage camera shops or film aficionados. They also available online through places like Phil's Vintage Movie Films and Collectibles and eBay.
