My 3D printer. Fun and challenging at the same time. Can't justify it from a practicality point of view, but it scratches a creative itch. Frustrating at times, rewarding when something works.

Areas of Geek interest: Home Theatre, HTPC, Android Tablets & Phones, iProducts.

My still-working Commodore 64 I've had since 1987.



On a related note, Acorn Archimedes; for a machine released in 1987 it was certainly extremely well-designed. The OS is modular and you can "softload" new modules to replace the functionality in ROM. With an up-to-date "SharedCLibrary" (and a few other modules) you can run apps that were written today!


Good luck posting on Geekzone from one though tongue-out

All in one: browse the web, take photos, take videos, calls, txts, listen to music, watch movie, pay for my coffee - smartphone! I wish it can cook :)
