Can you guess what's missing? (Heathkit H8)

Filed strictly under "fun" rather than a true contest, I was wondering if anyone can figure out the one (1) thing missing from this highly collectible Heathkit H8 computer system. The fact that the top cover is missing does not count, since I removed it so the inside of the system could be seen. In actuality, this unit is self-contained and ready to function as intended save for one key item. First correct answer to describe that key item gets a round of applause from all AA'rs and admiration from your fellow geeks everywhere!

You can view the images here. I highly recommend that after you click on an individual photo in the set that you go to "All Sizes" and pick "Original Size" to get the maximum detail.

RobotBooks.com Updates Featuring Lego Mindstorms NXT and BattleKits

Lego Mindstorms NXT Robot CreationBoy, the Lego Mindstorms NXT is looking cooler and cooler. I still have the original kit and won't be getting this one for quite some time until I break the seal on that one, but this one sure looks great for those who don't already have something like this or want something especially hardcore.

XGameStation updates - Build your own console

XGS Pico Edition 2.0 kit partsXGS Pico Edition 2.0 kit partsOur friends over at XGameStation have updated their product line with two new additions. Unfamiliar with the XGameStation concept? The product description for the new XGS Pico Edition 2.0 sums it up best:

"The XGameStation Pico Edition 2.0 is based on the technologies of its bigger brother the XGameStation Micro Edition. However, the Pico Edition is a more simplified unit that you assemble yourself! The XGS Pico Edition 2.0 comes with both the XGS Pico Edition 1.0 solderless breadboard and parts as well as the Pico PCB Add-On Kit, so it's two kits in one! After you build the solderless breadboard version then you can solder your unit together and have a completely portable embedded game system that you can re-program."
