Worlds Smallest Gadgets: Too Small for My Fat Fingers
March 7th, 2009
Thanks to breakthroughs in miniaturization, electronic gadgets keep getting tinier and tinier. But this is just ridiculous.
These teeny-weeny computers, consoles and consumer electronics are actually made out of paper. Created by papercraft artist Sonicscape Jun (the same guy who gave us the microscopic Nintendo DS Lite), these iconic paper models are amazingly detailed.
The tiny PlayStation 3 is stunningly precise, but I just love how the Xbox 360 model comes complete with an obsolete HD-DVD drive. Perfect for playing those miniature King Kong discs you’ve got lying around.
While I love the current-gen console models, it’s nice to see a shout-out to classic gaming too, with what could well be the smallest Atari 2600 ever.
I’m pretty sure I’d lose that mini Ms. Pac-Man cartridge in about 10 seconds.
You can check out more photos of Sonicscape’s mini gadget models over on Flickr. But why look at pictures, when you can make these for yourself. You can grab PDF copies of the models for you to cut out over at Fx Console.
