    I had some downtime this weekend so I made a short video of some cool prototypes I've noticed for sale in the past few years (on sites like eBay, Craigslist, forums, etc.)

    Has anyone else been intrigued by or seen some of these items before?

    Some of the rarest are listed below:

    - Clear Anything- Apple produced a few clear models of each device in the 80's and early 90's to show aesthetics and internal parts clearly.
    - Mac 128K with 5.25" Floppy Drive. It exists!!!
    - Apple Touchscreen Duo Tablet
    - Dual Floppy Unidisk External Drive

    Here's the video if anyone is interested:


    All image rights are reserved to the original sellers and I just made the video to share some of the more unusual vintage devices out in the wild.

    And if you didn't know, the background audio is "Here's to the Crazy Ones", a commercial Apple launched in the late 1990's in conjunction with the Think Different campaign after the return of Steve Jobs.

    Enjoy!
