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.

The Oktomat Eight Eyed Camera

The Oktomat is the photographic equivalent of an octopus, except that it's not a sea creature and isn't waterproof. It features eight lenses that capture a series of images on a single 35mm film frame. An entire sequence takes about two and a half seconds to shoot, which is enough to capture very simple animated scenes with the classic "Lomo" look. 

Everything about this little $40 camera is simple -- the top-mounted viewfinder is a fold-down piece of plastic, you can't change film exposure, and the lens is fixed focus. But since your animated sequences are captured on standard 35mm film, you can get them processed anywhere.
