Between the Nintendo Classic Mini, SNES Classic Mini, Atari Flashback, and Sega Mega Drive Classic, there’s a clear miniaturization trend when it comes to retro gaming systems. The next system to go in front of the shrink ray?
Man, I miss playing around on my old Commodore 64 computer. I never really knew how to code or anything, but with the help of popular computer magazines I could type in one of the many fun programs within the pages.
Professional LEGO builder Chris McVeigh is known for his miniature kits and building guides, including those of classic computers. But wouldn’t it be nice if there were LEGO sets of the machines you grew up with?
Programmer Paul Koller managed to make a full-fledged Commodore 64 demake of Terry Cavanagh’s beloved Super Hexagon. For the record, I behate it. It’s so freakin’ difficult. But I love Paul’s demake because even if it turns out to be as hard as the original game, at least it won’t take up a lot of my hard drive’s space.
Looking for something to put on your desk alongside your tiny Atari 2600 and NES? Why not print out a miniature Commodore 64 computer, complete with 1541 Floppy Drive so you can load some tiny programs onto it?
I love a good mod. The crazier the better. This one is crazy and all kinds of retro awesome. Some of you might know Jeri Ellsworth. She works for Valve and helped them start their hardware R&D department.
In my everyday, I have a hard time passing up retro computers, video games or cake. So when I saw this Commodore 64 cake, I had to at least give it a mention.
Yeah, yeah. I don’t remember playing PONG on my C64 either, and it’s not as sleek or modern as that MacBook Pro cake, but this retro computer cake actually looks much tastier, IMHO.
Ben Heck has put up his retro-futuristic creation, the Commodore 64 laptop, for auction. The proceeds will go to “a worthy charity”. The winning bidder also gets an SD card – the laptop is equipped with both an SD card slot and a cartridge slot – and a DVD of Possomus Woman, a film written and directed by the master modician himself.
After the arguably unnecessary rejection of the Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhone, Technologizer‘s Harry McCracken – whose last name would be much cooler if it ended with an exclamation point: McCracken! (and started with Zak) – decided to pit the iconic Commodore 64 with the future Hall of Famer, the iPhone 3GS, just for the heck of it.
