The compleat Wired future artifacts gallery, 02004

It's been a while since I posted the last annual instalment of Wired magazine's "artifacts from the future", from the back-page feature called "Found", because the magazine's usually scrupulously complete online archive doesn't include that segment prior to November 02004 (number 12.11). Therefore, as far as I know, they haven't been available anywhere on the web to date.

So today I went to Yale's Engineering Library and scanned the missing pieces, one by one. (Please excuse quality differences in the scanned images.)

Protip for preventing show-through from the other side of thin news-sheet or magazine web: put a piece of black paper under the page to be scanned.
