Atari 2600 Cart Clocks, Because You Hate Games

 |  |  |  |  |

Ah, game cartridges. They can bring so much joy… and take up so much space. And sure, you could save ’em forever, clearing space to keep all those boxes and carts… or you could brutally gut them and turn them into something else. A clock, say.

Can’tAffordEmCrafts, an Etsy storefront, has several of those former-Atari-cartridges for sale, now in useful clock form, as well as some other repurposed media (like old records). While I’m not sure if I could remove the innards of an old cartridge myself (the pain!), I’m glad there are others in the world, who are harder of heart, so that I can enjoy nifty game cartridge clocks. And even buy one, if I wanted. You can snag these for $20.
