Here's a massive boatload of covers from vintage Soviet tech magazines -- most of these came from valiant Twitterers (@billnagel, @kwispel, @vr_quarksoup, @houbi) who responded to my call for the originating URL for an unattributed gallery of covers I found on another site, filling my cup to overflowing with a motherload of sovfuturkitsch that I'll be wallowing in for days.

Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
They probably just sleep a lot. But still, you can remotely keep an eye on them when you’re at work and missing them deeply with this HD monitor from Kodak.If you have a new puppy that destroys everything in sight, or you just want to be a little more security-conscious, this WiFi camera is a […]
