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 Atari 2600 Lamp

New life for a dead Atari

AtariAge member Cebus Capucinis hand-crafted this lamp from an old Atari 2600 console, a stack or game cartridges and scans of vintage box art.

He writes: "A dead Atari 2600 6-switch is used as the base in this model. This model features an in-line "hidden" light switch in the back of the Atari for easy switching on and off and a nice stack of cartridges up the middle with an improved pipe core to keep the stack complete. The wiring for the lamp itself runs out the RF hole from the Atari so it looks just like an actual Atari would.

This took at least three weeks of constant work on my part to get done. This model is Monkey Labs Production Model #1 and its owner is none other than Albert, who was my test marketing group! Al says this lamp will be a part of the AtariAge booth at CGE and I am very, very proud to have it displayed there."

Cebus produced a limited edition run of 5 lamps, and I suspect he'd be willing to make another if you really, really had to have one for your bachelor pad.
