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.

Retro-Style LED Watches

Pulsarled

Here's a link to an interesting store full of LED watches. In addition to dozens of slightly too modern dot-matrix designs, there are quite a few vintage and not-so vintage 7-segment LED timepieces, including a genuine $395 "new old stock' Pulsar:

Complete set .... New in Box with wrench & instruction book! This awesome PULSAR 3502 Sport is 100% Mint - New Old Stock! Featuring 1970s state of the art Pulsar LED technology with capacitance (sensor buttons). You lightly touch the activation buttons to activate the large...laser bright display! Quoted as "Bullet Proof...The best module Pulsar ever made". Classic style all stainless case and adjustable band. With NEW (not vintage) inner and outer Pulsar/Seiko type boxes and stickers.

Even though the Pulsar looks cool, my favorite watch of all is the $69.95 DIY kit, since it requires enough assembly to feel like you've accomplished something clever without really having to exercise your gray matter.
