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.

Atari 2600 Cartridge Wallet

While some Atari 2600 games are rare and precious artifacts, some carts are crazy common. There's practically a DIY genre focused on finding other uses for the stubby chunks of 70's plastic.  This video shows off one crafter's idea for turning a typical Atari cartridge into a wallet. What makes this particular design interesting is that it re-uses every part of the original game except the screw that secures the two halves of the cart shell.

These carts are for sale on etsy.com, but I'm sure that some of our ingenious readers can ad lib something a bit similar. Just get in touch if you're going to hack up a Chase The Chuckwagon cart.  I'll trade ya a couple dozen Combat games.
