3D Arcade Mug Achieves a High Caffeine Score

 |  |  |  |  November 12, 2014


As a child of the ’80s, I can remember spending a plethora of quarters in the arcade every chance I got. The one thing most of the games seemed to have in common was that joystick with the big red ball on the end. About the worst thing that could happen to an arcade gamer back in the day, other than the machine eating your quarter and not playing, was having a broken joystick.

If you too are a child of the ’80s, or just like arcade games, this is the coffee mug for you. It has the Space Invaders on the outside and the handle is a joystick with a big red ball on the end. Ironically, the original Space Invaders machine didn’t have a joystick at all – it had buttons to move left and right:

The mug has 16-ounce capacity and is made from ceramic. It measures 4.5″ tall and 6″ wide at the handle. Sadly, you can’t microwave it or put it in the dishwasher. The mug will set you back $12.99(USD) at ThinkGeek, or about the same amount you’d pump into an arcade machine in an afternoon.
