Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

RCA mic James Steele has spent more than 30 years collecting classic American radio mics. His collection is by no means comprehensive - he admits there are some gaping omissions - but it's really nice of him to share his images with the unwashed masses.

The mic pictured here is a beautiful 1954 RCA Ribbon Velocity Type 77-DX, which features a mysterious "acoustic labarynth."

I think the market is begging for a decent line of affordable USB-enabled retro mics intended for home recording, videocasts and podcasts. Heck, they'd look pretty cool on stage as well.
