Experienced shoppers buy their holiday gifts early, so if you’re looking for a unique and memorable gift for an old school gamer, you better get one of Retrozone’s Xmas cartridges. These are original cartridges for the NES and SNES (or Famicom and Super Famicom, if you want to be OG) with Christmas-themed games.
Not only is this one of the more creative Christmas projects we’ve seen around here, it’s one of the cheapest–something that may very well appeal to those of us saving up for new (electronic!) toys. Also?
Sure, it’s only April, but you know what they say–every year, it’s earlier with the Christmas decorations, so why not beat the rush? It’s tempting when we’re talking about five bucks for handmade ornaments featuring iconic images from popular Xbox 360 games.
Now that Christmas is here, it’s time to turn our thoughts to the after holiday deals that will make really thankful if you got a gift card under the tree. So without further ado, here are some amazing deals I hand-picked for you over on Amazon.
This giant green Christmas tree was recently sighted at the base of an office building in Tokyo, Japan. But unlike its Rockefeller Center counterpart, this one can entirely vanish with the flip of a switch.
The bright green laser tree was on display from December 18 to 22 between the towers of the Yurakucho Marion building in the Tokyo’s fashionable Ginza district.
Ever wonder how do Mr. and Mrs. Claus keep their toes warm on a cold North Pole night? Why, with these heated USB Santa boots, of course.
Leave it to the wacky gadget makers of Japan’s Thanko (the same guys who brought us other gems like these) to come up with these silly oversize red shoes, which keep your tootsies toasty when you plug them into your computer’s USB port.
Here’s a fun little holiday project for you mechanically-inclined folks out there. This strange looking contraption connects to your computer and rings a little bell every time a visitor hits your website.
With a few bucks worth of off the shelf parts, an Arduino board, a USB cable and a little code, you too can have one for your website, thanks to this detailed “how-to” article over on Tinkerlog.
This has gotta be the coolest Christmas tree I think I’ve ever seen. Pac-Man and his ghostly pals have been reproduced in this giant holiday light display.
The “tree” features a fully-animated version of the classic arcade game, rendered across thousands of colored LEDs.
