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.

The Briel PockeTerm


Vince Briel designed the PocketTerm as a low cost terminal for vintage microcomputers. It lets you use a spare VGA monitor and PS/2 keyboard for input and output.

Briel-pocketerm-board Dual serial ports are included for debugging and development - you can transfer data to/from a PC while still attached to the host device. The tiny 4.5" x 2" board uses a Parallax Propeller microcontroller and is VT-100 compatible. The only thing it doesn't include is a case.

The DIY kit is now on sale for $60, or purchase your PockeTerm assembled and tested for $90. Blank PC boards are available for $18, if you happen to have a few spare Propeller chips lying around.
