Here’s a rather unusual dot-matrix wrist watch from my own collection.
The watch was made in 1980 by Seiko, and is apparently rather rare - in fact I haven’t been able to find much background information about this watch - neither on previous eBay sales or collector sites.
The very slick and thin design reminds me of a 1980’s robocop / wallstreet-yuppie clone! The watch only have 2 functions; watch and date + light. Pressing the date button shows the date, and scrolls in the time from right to left - extremely nice, but very battery consuming.
Mine is not for sale.

Words should be unnecessary! This is without doubt a legendary piece of retro equipment, which deserves an absolute front row in my personal electronic collection! Never the less - I plan on selling my TB303 on eBay in near future!
The 303 synthesizer was introduced in the early 1980’s and production was stopped after just 18 months - allowing only 10.000 units to leave the Roland factories in Japan!
Don’t know how a TB-303 sounds? Check out “Phuture’s Acid Trax” from 1987 - one of the first (if not the first) acid house tracks to use the charecteristic 303 bass line.
Update: My 303 has now been sold! Before it was shipped to a collector in the UK, I created a “memorial” desktop image of the 303 together with a pair of late 1970’s Hosiden headphones - download the 1280×1024 pixel desktop image here

Set of original 1970’s Pioneer headphones model ‘Monitor 10′! Absolutely cool design, details and constructed with great materials - e.g. leather frame and metal screws.
My set was bought at the local garage sale - is in very good condition and works too! I like the design so much I decided to reuse the picture below, as my computer desktop - feel free to download it here.

Here’s an interesting and rather different piece of 1980’s ‘Danish design’!
Terminator - The ultimate Joystick, as the box claim! Shaped as a hand grenade, build in hard and heavy plastic with real metal handle, grip and split! Pretty politically incorrect now a days, but this item was designed in the mid 80’s for the Commodore 64 era
MINT in original box - part of my own collection.

Simon was originally launched in late 1978 by Milton Bradley, and was the must-have toy for Christmas that year. Super Simon was released 2 years later in 1980, and as something completely new introduced electronic interactive multiplay!
The various version of Simon were extremely popular and sold in millions - in fact they were so popular that they even showed up in early 1980’s movies! Super Simon have e.g. been spotted in “Lampoon’s Vacation” and “E.T. - The Extra Terrestrial”
Mine is MINT, in original box - I picked it up at the local scout flea market for $1!

Classic Danish design - the Beolit 607 FM portable radio from the early 1960’s.
Even back then Bang & Olufsen were pioneers in the field of ‘Danish Modern’ and vision. This portable radio was produced in a variety of colors, from light green, light blue and red to black. It must have been B&O’s first attempt at early pop-art, and to break out of the traditional color scheme.

This is the rare red version of the Nilus 8mm silent projector from the 1950’s.
Mine is in near-mint condition with original warranty card from Illum anno 1959! Extremely futuristic design and bold red color, not at all very common for it’s time, and compared to other projectors from the same period!

Bought this beauty at a local garage sale last weekend - complete in original box including a bunch of 1960’s cartoon and horror movies! Uses 6 large batteries and movie reels are attached on the back of the projector - build in tin and plastic, great design if you ask me! Could have been something from The Jetsons! This item is not for sale - got more information about it? Please post here, or write email@example.com

Here’s another fine example of vintage japanese electronic design, which definitely deserve space on the retrolution hall of fame shelves.
This very slick designed radio can be worn around your wrist, as well as being turned 180 degrees to form a s-shape. Unfortunately this radio only got AM band, just as the Panapet. Has got build-in speaker, volume button, ear-phone plug and a nice toot-a-loop metal plate at the oppisite end of the futuristic AM-tuner seen on the picture below. Mine is red, a bit worn but was bought for just $5 - not for sale.

Slick organic design and produced in almost all colors of the rainbow. This is the nice National Panasonic Panapet 70 from the 1970’s Japan - nice build-in round-shaped tuner - unfortunately only with AM band, no European FM band available. 2 silver buttons for tuning and adjusting volume + build-in speaker. Fits in your hand but also equiped with a string to carry it along. Mine is the cool cobalt blue version - it’s not for sale, just for viewing pleasure.

Found this nice camera on a local garage sale - I had absolutely no knowledge about this camera, and just bought it out of curiosity. I got quite surprised when I returned home and checked eBay for similar items!

Here’s a true gem from the early years of Danish kitchen machinery - the mixer is fully working, complete with a Blender, meat grinder and mixer!
A mixer like this was a part of the exhibition “The industrial Icons: Danish Design” held at the Danish National Museum of Industrial Art in 2004.
