PlayMore Handheld: Another Portable Emulates Retro Consoles
There have been numerous handhelds out there which can play games from the old 8-bit and 16-bit era consoles. Personally, I have the Dingoo A-320, which handles the job nicely. But there’s a new player in town which looks like it could be good, and it’s also cheap.

Wall-mounted Game & Watch Good for a Few Games, Not Very Portable
One reason why handheld video game consoles were (and are) so popular is because they’re extremely portable. Most of them can be folded up or kept in cases and then stowed away in a purse or backpack, ready to be taken out for another round of gaming when the opportunity arises.

NES Lunchbox: Eat Bit
There’s no such thing as being too old to play a video game, but I’m not sure if I can say the same about carrying a lunchbox. And I’m not brave or geeky enough to use a console as one.

I’ve never been particularly adept at cutting precise forms with an X-Acto knife, and then if I do anything with glue, it ends up everywhere it’s not supposed to. So when I see work like this, I can really appreciate the amount of artistic talent and technique it takes to construct something as incredible as these papercraft retro gadgets.

NES Advantage Lamp: My Joystick Doesn’t Work!
For those of you who don’t recall, the NES Advantage was the big arcade joystick for the classic 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. For those of us who grew up in the arcades, these things were so much better than those silly little gamepads.
