We here at technabob are big fans of the guys over at Retro Thing. They’re always digging up the coolest blasts-from-the-past. Now, they’ve really outdone themselves, offering up a totally unique new product perfect for retro game fans.

Created with the help of Legacy Engineering (the guys responsible for the Atari Flashback 2 console), Retro Thing’s new Clear Classic USB Joystick ($29.95 USD) is based on the look of a classic Atari 2600 joystick, but comes in a super cool see-through package. In addition to its default clear mode, the circuit board lights up in a brilliant blue when plugged into your computer’s USB port.

The Classic Clear comes with a CD loaded up with a copy of Stella – the leading Atari 2600 emulator, along with 80 games for your retro enjoyment. And if you know all the proper rocks to dig under, you can load up all of your favorite game ROMs and play them with this classic stick. And since the joystick works just like any other USB joypad, it’ll work with other popular retro emulators such as MAME and MESS.

If you’re into retro gaming, you owe it to yourself to head on over to the Reflex Audio site and place your order for one today.
