SEGA Game Gear Micro Is a Ludicrously Tiny Retro Handheld
When it comes to retro gaming systems, SEGA made some of my favorites, including the Master System, Genesis, and Dreamcast. Long before modern mobile devices, the Japanese video game company created one of the first full-color handhelds, the SEGA Game Gear.

Mini LEGO Arcade Machines: Tiny Things Are Awesome

Mini LEGO Arcade Machines: Tiny Things Are Awesome
Among my many geeky pursuits, two of my favorites are classic arcade games and LEGO. So when I stumbled onto this collection of custom LEGO arcade machines, I had to bust open the piggy bank (aka my PayPal account) – since that’s where I save my spare change to buy stuff that I don’t NEED but that I really WANT.

The Sinden Is a Light Gun for LCD TVs

The Sinden Is a Light Gun for LCD TVs
Among classic arcade and console games, light gun shooters are some of my favorites. The problem is that the technology used for older video game systems required the scanning beam of a cathode ray picture tube to detect where you were pointing the light gun.

3.5″ Floppy Disk Coasters Protect Tables with Pixels
You know what makes a good drink coaster? A good old 3.5″ floppy disk. But real floppies have moving parts and irregularities that can make them less than ideal surfaces for balancing some glasses. Never mind that they just don’t look as cool as these colorful pixel art floppy coasters.

LEGO 3Dfx Voodoo 3D Card Brings Back 1990s Memories
Since I’ve mostly been using a laptop, an iPad and an iMac, it’s been a while since I had a computer with an upgradeable graphics card. But back in the day, I was constantly gunning for the latest and greatest graphics processors to play games like Quake II and Duke Nukem 3D at the fastest frame rate possible.

Tetris Lamp: Stack ‘Em If You Got ‘Em

Tetris Lamp: Stack ‘Em If You Got ‘Em
Full disclosure: as much as people loved Tetris, I sucked at the game. Every time the blocks started falling from the sky, I’d survive for about two minutes before I got overwhelmed, and they hit the top and my game was over.

Robocop ReAction Figures: I’d Buy These for a Dollar!

Robocop ReAction Figures: I’d Buy These for a Dollar!
Toymaker Super7’s ReAction line of action figures is designed to capture the feel and style of 1970s and 1980s action figures from brands like Kenner and Mego. So in other words, don’t expect them to be screen-accurate or well-articulated.

Pac-Man Succulent Planters Trade Quarters for Cacti
You know what the ghosts from Pac-Man could use? Plants growing out of their heads, that’s what. Yeah, that makes them much more adorable, and less intimidating for sure. That’s why I love these Pac-Man ghost planters from Dips and Prints.

Star Wars-Inspired USB Arcade Controller Hits Kickstarter

Star Wars-Inspired USB Arcade Controller Hits Kickstarter
I always loved playing Atari’s vector-based arcade games back in the 1980s. Games like Tempest, BattleZone, and Quantum were some of my favorites. And then there was Star Wars. I loved shooting down TIE fighters, zapping radar towers, and zooming into the belly of the Death Star to take aim at its exhaust port in hopes of blowing the thing to smithereens.

Atari to Open Video Game Themed Hotels
If you grew up in the 1970s or 1980s, Atari was located somewhere near the center of your universe. The brand kicked off the home video game revolution with the Atari 2600, and also created some of the best and most memorable arcade games.

Xtension Gameplay Arcade Cabinets Are Perfect for Raspberry Pi Systems
I love playing classic arcade games. In fact, I love them so much, I spent several thousand dollars having a custom-built arcade cabinet put together. But you don’t have to spend nearly that much to have a professional looking cabinet these days, thanks to folks like Rec Room Masters and systems like their Xtension Gameplay cabinets.

Modder Made Working GameCube Joy-Cons for His Nintendo Switch
The Nintendo Switch is a fantastic little gaming system, with a great library of exclusive games, and the ability to switch between a portable and home console in one. The standard Joy-Con gaming controllers that come with it are pretty good already – if a little small for those of us with bigger hands.

Tiny Arcade Q*Bert and Pole Position Games Don’t Need Tiny Quarters
