Whether you’re rooting for Pac-Man or the ghosts, here’s something fun you can add you your drawer full of geekery. It’s a set of fun Pac-Man rubber stamps, the ideal thing for marking up your papers and showing off your inner game geek.
I just finished watching the Back to The Future trilogy again this weekend, so I have that Huey Lewis Back in Time song stuck in my head. Perhaps the name of this watch was inspired by that song, since it’s called “Pac-in-time.”
I’m not sure from whence this Pac-Man ghost dress originated, but it’s pretty great. I especially like the pixelated fringing on the bottom of this short little number, done up to look like Inky, the cyan ghost.
Being an avid fan of the classic arcade game Pac-Man, it’s hard for me to resist much of anything with a solid Pac-theme to it. So combine Pac-Man with junk food, and I’m happier than a yellow puck in a roomful of blue ghosts and unlimited power pills.
You’ve probably heard of the controversial Bitcoin, a digitally generated peer-to-peer currency. Some people think it’s a great idea, while some think it’s inherently worthless and is doomed to fail. All I know is that these pixel art banknotes are a great fit for Bitcoin.
If you were disappointed with Stop Motion Mario’s gameplay, you’ll be even more frustrated with Urban Pac-Man. First off, the video makes no sense. Then again, it’s not like Pac-Man had an award-winning story, so I guess the video is faithful in that way.
While I doubt that Brando asked to license these from Namco, they’re certainly fun lamps for your work area. These USB Light-Sensitive Ghost Lamp’s light up like a Christmas tree whenever it senses that you need more light, all the while looking vaguely like the ghosts from Pac-Man.
From the looks of this retro-mechanical machine, it looks like Pac-Man was in existence long before the 1980s. The Ghost Eater 1 is powered by gears, steam, cherries and power pellets, and is the perfect t-shirt for retro gaming fans.
Planning on heading to London any time soon? There’s no better way to get around besides the Underground (aka the “Tube”). Of course, you’ll need a map, right? Well geeks and geekettes, have I got a Tube map for you.
John Buonvino’s user name on DeviantART says it all: “NES–still-the-best”. He paid homage to his favorite console by making 3D voxel renderings of many popular NES games. Buonvino considers his Super Mario Bros. render below to be his “final 8-bit magnum opus”:
Now that it’s 84 degrees and 99% humidity outside here in Chicago, it’s perfect timing for this bit of Pac-Man merch to hit stores, right? Well, maybe the guys who make this Pac-Man fleece blanket are a little off with their calendars, but if you happen to live in the Southern Hemisphere, you could be needing a warm-up soon, right?
If you guys have followed Technabob for a while, you know that we love us some Pac-Man around here, so when I saw that the Internet is now the home of the world’s largest Pac-Man game, I was pretty stoked.
Made by Jonas and Simon Schwarzer, A Little Bit World sees classic video game characters emerge from a question mark block. It’s practically the low-budget version of Pixels by onemoreprod and Patrick Jean, though I wouldn’t call it a rip-off.
