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.

New Circuit Bent Electro Gadgets By Mike Ford

Mike Ford

Mike Ford's quirky electronic objects successfully meld the vintage aesthetics of steampunk with the crazy world of electronic circuit bending. Mike recently posted videos of his latest crop of whacky gadgets on YouTube for your oogling pleasure. Be sure to check out his gorgeous version of Ray Wilson's Weird Sound Generator,  the Atari Steampunk Console, Captain Nemo Beatbox and the peculiarly pyramidal Trioscilator [above].

Mike's unique interpretation of Ray Wilson's Weird Sound Generator.

Warpfactor9 is perfect for simulating the sounds of a starship engine room - should you ever have such a requirement.

The Captain Nemo Beatbox looks like something that belongs on the set of Battlestar Galactica. It sounds like the love child of an old electric typewriter and my abused clock radio.


This one is insanely awesome - the world can never have too many incomprehensible little machines with brass dials and knobs.
