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 Camera Data Bank

Bolex B8

The Kameradatenbank features a fantastic collection of movie camera photos from six German library and museum collections. Twenty four different film formats are represented, ranging from Regular 8mm through massive 60 mm cine monsters.

I wasn't initially going to post the site because it's in German, but it's too cool to pass up. From the main page, just click Stöbern (Browse). You'll be presented with a list of options:

Hersteller (Manufacturer)
Herstellungsdatum (Date of manufacture)
Objekttypen (Equipment type)
Filmformat (Film format)
Standorte (Collection)
Herstellungsort (Place of manufacture)

I'm sure you can take it from there. And, as always, Google Translate will do a nice job of mangling the accompanying text into almost-but-not-quite Klingon.
