Remember that retro looking Space Invaders clock we told you about last year? It was pretty cool by itself, but now it has become even more functional. Designer Grant Gibson turned his into an awesome Gmail notifier.
You know my rule. Slap some Space Invaders on something, and I’ll probably post it. Ok, I won’t post just anything with an Invader on it, but if it’s remotely interesting, I’m a pushover. Take, for example, this Space Invaders bedecked phone.
Sure, this Space Invaders waffle look delicious, but it makes you wonder if they’ll ever invade your other meals. I don’t think there’s any danger of that, but are there other meals that can be shaped like Space Invaders?
If you’re a lover of classic video games, then you’ll probably dig this retro-style ring, made to look like a Space Invader. What I really love about it is that it’s not just a solid shape, but it actually looks like its made up of pixels.
Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of Space Invaders-themed stuff. Although some aren’t things I’m very fond of (like the Space Invaders silk tie), there are some that I definitely think are worth getting (like the Space Invaders Alarm Clock and the Space Invaders Multi Tool.)
By now we all know the iCade, which was the first enclosure for the iPad that turned it into a mini arcade machine. Then came the Atari Arcade Duo Joystick, which provides a more open arcade experience.
These ties are perfect for the geek that needs to dress up, now and again. The Space Invaders Silk Ties are made by UK neckwear makers Projector and they come in a variety of different colors, infusing a bit of style into any geek’s attire.
We love us some Space Invaders around these parts, especially when they keep all your gadgets looking colorfully retro. These items just please the young geek inside of me who pumped way too many quarters in way too many arcade machines.
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.
While my personal favorite Space Invaders wristwatch has to be this one by Romain Jerome, I don’t have $10,000+ to spare, so it won’t be making its way to my wrist any time soon. Thankfully, the guys at ThinkGeek have us mere mortals covered, with the decidedly more down-to-earth Infinity Invaderz watch.
I wasn’t aware that there are enthusiasts that love making miniature arcade cabinets. And they don’t just make beautiful cases, like the ones we’ve featured before, their machines are actually functional. One of the newer ones is this Space Invaders cabinet made by YouTuber vcoleiro1.
This wouldn’t be the first Space Invaders watch I’ve featured on the site. It’s not even the first rare Space Invaders watch. But it is – for sure – the first one to cost $10,000. Actually, the guys over at Perpetuelle are just guessing at that price.
