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.

Affordable DIY projection screens

We covered Lumenlab's do-it-yourself video projectors a couple of months ago. It seems that many people build these fantastic HD projectors and splash the huge image all over their beige living room walls. There is a better way, people!

Goo Systems in Kingston, Ontario offers 'Screen Goo,' a uniquely formulated acrylic paint intended to create a high-performance projection screen. The product is offered in CRT White, Digital Grey and Digital Grey Lite.The paint is available as a basecoat and topcoat, and both can be applied using a roller or paint sprayer.

A 60-inch (150 cm) diagonal screen requires 500 ml of basecoat (approx. US $30) and an additional 500 ml of topcoat (approx. US $95). This definitely beats projecting the Director's Cut of Blade Runner on top of your sweetie's favorite shade of burgundy.

And don't forget that Screen Goo also works wonderfully with vintage Super 8 projectors!
