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 Littlest Casio


This Casio VL-10 is even smaller than its famous brother, the original VL-Tone. It includes the same cheesy sounds and 29-button chicklet keyboard, along with convenient calculator functionality so you can double-check your record company royalty payments.

Both VL-Tones feature five awful monophonic sounds (basically the same square wave bleep with different amplitude envelopes), a sixth programmable "ADSR" synth mode, and 10 drum rhythms that should be perfect for accompanying your next smash-hit waltz or bossanova.


All kidding aside, the VL-10 is a rare example of 80s calculator style. This one is boxed with the instruction manual and slip-on case. It should fetch a pretty penny.
