I suppose $499.99 is a bit too much to pay for a toy at my age … even if it would be the absolute coolest toy in the history of all time … even if it would be a toy I dreamt of owning for the better part of the first half (fifteen years) of my life … even if it would be something that would, perhaps, escalate me to Level III.
What is sad is that it is a toy that I could probably never explain to my (potential) children. It’s a toy that even now is likely only understood by an ever-shrinking number of still-awestruck twenty-five to forty-one year olds. It’s so, so difficult to explain a revolution to those either too young to have known the world before it or too unlike you to care.
