For starters I’ll mention that I’m not sure from whence these photos originate, but when I saw them over on Russian casemod site Modding.Ru, I had to post them. From the looks of these pics, it looks like a tiny little family has moved into this warm and cozy computer living room and set up their home.
Now that you’ve got your Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Tetris retro mini arcade cabinets, it’s time to add to your tiny arcade collection with a few slightly newer games. These 4-inch long mini arcade games are modeled after classics from SEGA’s arcade hey-day.
I always dreamed of the day that I could have my own tiny little robotic army that hangs out on my desktop to do my bidding. While these little robot clock dudes don’t exactly do all of my bidding, they do tell the time, and they look good doing it.
Give your robot a hand (or two) with these incredibly complex mechanical digits from Japan’s Crafthouse. Instead of the typical grippers you might find on a hobby robot, Crafthouse’s servo-controlled GOD HANDs give miniature robots a set of flexible digits that work much like their human masters’ appendages.
Cuter than a bowl of kittens covered in marshmallows and sprinkles, these little electronic playthings are enough to make me want to puke a rainbow.
Each of TakaraTomy’s Micropets-i miniature desktop robo-playthings has a tiny little mind of its own.
If you’re not turning your old gaming consoles into miniature arcade cabinets, then you need to get on that business. Just look at this hotness. It is undeniable.
pocket_lucho is no stranger to making mini arcade cabinets; he’s been simultaneously up- and downsizing old systems for a while, as you can see, but this Neo Geo model looks really slick throughout the process.
I could definitely go for some Japanese food for lunch today. Writing about this tiny flash drive in the shape of a Bento box special definitely put the idea in my head.
But on closer inspection, the miniature foodstuffs in this minuscule USB storage device don’t look all that appealing.
Next time you see a bat flying about the evening sky, you’d better look close to make sure you’re not being observed by one of these miniature flying robot bats instead of the real thing.
Researchers at North Carolina State University are developing a micro-aerial vehicle (MAV) built with a body structure that mimics a bat.
This weensy little computer is so small that you might accidentally misplace it if you’re not careful.
The oddly-named Marvell Sheevaplug (I think I went to college with him) is about the size of your average gadget’s power adapter, but it actually contains a complete computer (sans video output).
Is that a lightsaber unit in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you whip out this tiny little motorized R2-D2 and he starts tooling around your desk between your coffee mug and your iPod dock.
I recently had the opportunity to get my hands on the brand new BENQ Joybee GP1 mini projector and put it through its paces.
The Joybee GP1 may have a silly name, but under the covers this tiny little projector means business.
Sure, Christmas is almost seven months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start getting in the spirit really, really early. Especially if you really, really love your retro video games.
I first eyed Hallmark’s keepsake Pac-Man holiday ornament back in December 2008, and grabbed one for my tree then.
There’s something just so wrong it’s right about these tiny little Sony PlayStation controllers that you can hang all over the place.
As shown in the picture above, these miniature felt PlayStation controllers look perfect hanging from your Sony PSP (or even better yet on your Nintendo DS).
I just got back from watching the glorious new Star Trek movie, so I must have the Enterprise on the brain. And while this tiny Starship Enterprise isn’t quite as dramatic as the mammoth star vessel from the film, it’s just as cool in my book.
