Want (sorta): Honeywell's Kitchen Computer (1969)

I sort of want one, just as a showpiece and possibly something to hack but there is little point in adding it to the Xmas list. The Honeywell Kitchen Computer was so large, difficult to use and performed so few functions that the company, apparently, didn't sell a single unit. Obviously early adopters didn't exist in 1969. So, it is unlikely that you'll find one outside of a museum. For more info on this early fail at introducing the home computer visit Boing Boing.

Edit: Thanks to @C_onfessor on Twitter for passing along this sort-of-infomercialish-video-thing hyping the internet, also from 1969.
