I had one of these in about 1976 - (Prinztronic - i.e. Dixons)
We were poor. But it got me through my A-Levels.

<i>Solaris</i>, absolutely. But my God, not the remake. Tarkovsky is <b>way</b> better. And while we're thinking of the genius of the man, <i>Stalker</i> should also be in this list. In fact, remove everything from the list as it is, and just slot all of his films in there, 'Sci-Fi' or not. That's all that sentient fans need.
I was given a Philips electronics kit when I was 10 (1970-ish), and spent the next 5 or 6 years totally engrossed in radio and electronics. Devoured 'Everyday Electronics', 'Wireless World', 'Short Wave Magazine', 'Elektor'... all of them. Built receivers, transmitters, transceivers, bugs, everything... absolutely invaluable foundation for later life.
Erm... I'm now a potter... erm...
