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.

Wicked DIY analog video synth


Brian McKenna has hacked up a very cool 'signal bending' analog video synthesizer. It's kinda like circuit bending, except it works by overlaying audio waveforms onto the VGA output of a computer. The result is an unpredictable and quirky video glitch machine.

However, analogue video synthesis techniques can still offer a great many advantages in terms of aesthetics, performance, simplicity, and adaptability. Not to mention the non-linear surprises which can come from working in the analogue domain. This "VGA Expropriator" will be the first in a series of proprietary analogue hardware devices which seek to explore the possibilities of digital/analogue hybrid technology in video/audio performance and studio production contexts. The first offering here is essentially a new design with it's creative process making ample use of circuit-bending methodologies."
