  • Greetings and welcome to an LGR unboxing thing

  • It kind of feels like I just did one of these but it turns out the last time was back in July

  • Yeah time is simply flying by and it bothers me

  • But at least I've had a bunch of neat stuff show up over the past several months

  • So let's go through each one of them and admire the fruits of your generosity

  • First one here comes from Kate and Tony in Canada

  • Multiple pieces of candies another we got some Smarties Kit Kats a little bit different than the ones I

  • Have here in the US they look to be rounded and candy coated greetings from Canada's capital. Whoo

  • Apparently this thing was actually made in Belleville, Ontario

  • And all the patents have expired so I don't want to make one of these myself

  • Maybe I could yeah, this just looked absolutely silly

  • Maybe a picture of it. I'm like, yes, please send this my way. I mean look at it

  • you clip a keyboard like a giant model m to the top of your

  • IBM and the Doge that appears to be an IBM ps/2

  • Model 25. I mean, it's just a couple pieces of plastic I guess, but I thank you very much that one here from Thomas

  • As promised here's the IBM mousepad

  • Ooh neat this riff on the logo is famous in the world of logo design made by Paul Rand. Oh, man

  • That is an absolute classic

  • Open that up right now. Yeah, I've got a mug with this design on it. I've seen t-shirts pins, you know booklets everything

  • IBM it's just a I don't know kind of straightforward silly design, but it's also just a classic. So thank you very much

  • Okay got one here from Tom. I

  • didn't see any notes, but

  • This thing is wrapped up. Rather nicely. Oh, yeah

  • Not quite the normal piece of computing history that I received

  • But yeah, this is an original piece from the outside of the mosque technology building Mouse technology

  • Of course. We're the ones responsible for

  • Especially the chipsets used in Commodores machines for a long long time and you know a whole bunch of other stuff CPUs and whatnot

  • But then we offered this. I'm like, that's so strange. I can't say no. So thank you very much tom put that right there

  • No, it's not gonna fall if it did. It's like three inches onto the table. Okay now when hear from William

  • Okay

  • Cassette tapes and a bunch of stuff. Hey Clint. I took a few tries to get that

  • Looking safer work. Yeah, you know sometimes the L in the eye. Oh, yeah, okay

  • So some different music releases and floppy discs and whatnot. No, I'm not censoring that at all

  • That is what the title is can't change that. Yeah, I am a VSnares fan

  • So sounded awesome to me included some other things, too

  • Unfortunately, it seems he's got a little bit cracked apart during shipment or maybe this just supposed to look like that it kind of fits

  • The aesthetic but yeah, so these are you know, I've collected a bunch of albums on floppy disk albums

  • Usually it's just different tracks whether they be MIDI files or I have one that's like just ad-lib music

  • And then sometimes people try to get like actual mp3s compressed music and put on floppy disks

  • And of course, these aren't disks at all. These are

  • Cassettes and so I don't know independent weird releases just things of any kind that are musical and odd. I am all for

  • There's a machines users guide. Oh, yeah, this is for the e one that's great. Absolutely. Great. I've already covered this but

  • This man and I see one of these in a while when these tiny little shaped many CDs

  • I've actually never seen one on a burned CD. Well, thank you very much William. This stuff is great

  • Okay got one here from Jason in Australia

  • Here's the retail shareware version Oh Duke took them to I promised ah, yes some shameless plugs

  • I've seen this show up on eBay and well being that it's an australian

  • release I kind of thought I'd maybe never get one but

  • Look at that artwork

  • Shareware games from all sorts of companies were released by these different vendors

  • this one in particular seems to be red dragon AB by Aptos software, Burbank, California

  • So I guess this one isn't from Australia at all

  • Well, anyway, apparently it made it to Australia

  • And here it is in my hands. I don't know they always did custom artwork all sorts of companies like this did neat art

  • So thank you very much. This is a cool addition to the collection. Okay got one here from

  • Nathan some nice LG artwork right there

  • Works with a mainframe and as a result of good few of his co-workers have been in the business for a long time

  • Saw these pins up for grabs at work. They sent me a photo of just a ton of different

  • technology

  • Computing related pins. I don't ever wear pins or pin them on anything but I like them

  • So anyway, we got a couple IBM related ones. They're actually most of these the IBM ones I wanted to take it from them

  • AIX is a three-letter word. I like this one though. IBM can beat your Wang

  • I don't imagine that was actually IBM that released that but there was this sort of especially with terminal IBM versus Wang

  • Going on at the time. That's mr. Nerd to you. That's just silly and then here we got another IBM one

  • So the IBM report management and distribution system if you print store and protect well, thank you very much Nate

  • These are delightful, you know, and here's not from a person but from a company retro patents

  • And you may remember actually did a video on some of their products a while back

  • So what they do, I mean it's in the name they make retro patents. But yeah, check this out. They've got this new

  • Process and it can also do sort of a negative image like on black

  • Instead of white and black it's like black and white, you know, whatever. Anyway, this looks awesome

  • So thank you very much guys for sending me one of your new products

  • PC version of the vide video digitizer

  • computerize with some documentation software and of course the all-important card itself and these you can actually

  • Hook up video to this and then capture it - you were an IBM pc-compatible, which is awesome

  • This was something I briefly mentioned when I talked about the Canon RC 250 still video cameras, you know

  • They weren't digital cameras yet

  • But they you could take the still imagery and get it into a digital format with a system like this

  • So I look forward to trying this out

  • Thank you very much for the unusual items. And then what is this even almost seems like a demon gun?

  • kind of

  • Thing maybe it is. Okay got one here from the packing pros

  • Nowhere and got this email

  • Saying oh crap. Well, that's

  • Well that foam is not a good shape Wow

  • Feels like old like 8-track foam. All right, well, whatever put that back together and clean it up

  • Like just as I was about to give one of on eBay and he said oh look I've got one in Bucks

  • Which is fantastic

  • because I've struggled with getting

  • Good out click over here with you know, ntsc and like these things had, you know, just RF output

  • Going to a weird channel and I was in Powell just a pain

  • And then so yeah, this thing is awesome

  • Hopefully it seems like it might be a great solution and then he also sent this as this as well

  • This is the dip MMC pro 1 which is just fantastic. Not only provides some joystick ports right there

  • I'm assuming Kempston maybe oh, it does all the main things at Kemps didn't Sinclair

  • cursor joystick fuller joystick

  • anyway

  • As well as having kind of a hard disk of sorts. That's just something I've never messed with with a spectrum

  • 2555 ad this is a Sur Tech game from the late 90s mid 90s. It uses 3d effects

  • So of course, I'm interested right off the bat simply due to the early 3d acceleration thing going on here. Yeah

  • 1997 3dfx game it just it kind of looks like crap so I can't wait to try it out

  • It seems like I did try it out at one point on something like a demo of it

  • Mmm, yeah. In fact, I'm pretty darn sure I did cuz that looks familiar

  • But I forgot what video that was. Anyway, thank you so much for sending these. Alright got another one here from a Jeremy

  • Alright thanks, really awesome reviews. You're very welcome. Woo nonsensical nonsense. I appreciate the redundant redundancy

  • This is something that's actually meant to pick this up a while back

  • Yeah compilations for systems and computers and games and such but didn't have this one. I love the retro gamer things got a brand new

  • trs-80

  • Computer cassette recorder here. Well, I don't know if it's brand new, but it's in a box

  • One of these things I

  • think I used to have wandered or maybe I still do I don't remember but I've

  • Come across these every so often the extreme 3d system

  • Mm-hmm images appear to be floating inside and in front of the screen a couple of random games in here at school

  • tycoon Madagascar 2 for the PlayStation 2

  • One is this we got a Edison bulb?

  • That's cool. Wow

  • It would be theirs. There's nothing in there an empty Edison bulb

  • Box, I don't know if that's an oversight or not. I don't know

  • Well, thanks for the box. And thanks for the other cool things that are actually here and not invisible

  • Okay, go in here from Danny in Holland

  • Here's the staff. We emailed about and some extra enjoy. Say hi to Leon for me. He'll get it. Hi Leon Oh my

  • Dutch candies. Wow, this is just a

  • Box our randomness all these foods something intense pure chocolate something

  • Backers speculaas. I don't know what this is. It's like perfume or something

  • Nope it's I don't know what what what is it this product is using the German military technology

  • What what it takes a SIM card? Oh, it's kind of voice selector switch a data port flashlight and pick up holes

  • I'm sure I'll look it up after this find out. Okay. So yeah, the rest of this is just a whole bunch of randomness

  • I think the only thing that we actually agreed on

  • Sending was this opinion for here in the box because I don't run across these in the box too much. This is the

  • 653 point 4 gigahertz version so that's handy for something at some point

  • I don't know man, again like processors in the box. I can't really say no to them. Thank you. I will use

  • What I can

  • Boxers are getting much bigger here. This one is from Kevin

  • This is an interesting thing, but always kind of curious about these

  • This right here is an Apple II mate

  • 300

  • It's based on the Apple Newton apparently found this at Goodwill for 20 bucks was pretty good deal complete in box

  • These are mostly used by students and classes and schools around the u.s. Maybe elsewhere

  • I don't really know but I've definitely heard about these for a long time and always found them kind of odd

  • Apparently this came from West world computers. Oh, but doesn't like come to life and kill me

  • Yeah, it doesn't look like anything to me though

  • So yeah, he made 300 and it's one of those odd footnotes in Apple history. Unjust computing history in general. Really?

  • Yeah, look at that thing. Like what a cool
