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.

Wooden War Engine Kits

There aren't enough trebuchets and catapults in suburbia. Just imagine the fun you could have at a Friday night BBQ with a decent trebuchet. After all, nothing says, "I despise the half dozen rusting cars in your driveway" quite like a flaming rotten sheep arcing over the back fence. Or so I'm told.

To get your feet wet, try building one of these wooden war engine kits from ThinkGeek. The $19.99 catapult has a 10-foot range and measures 12"L X 5.5"W X 5"H. It's made from precut and pre-drilled basswood with spruce/pine/fir main beams. The $34.99 trebuchet has twice the range and measures 18.5"L X 11"W X 13"H, making it slightly harder to hide in your cubicle. You'll need some pliers, wood glue and manual dexterity to complete your mechanical marauding masterpiece.
