This is a pretty interesting piece! This is based off of the Atari 2600 style and is essentially a noise maker that recreates original ‘low-fi’ Atari sounds from the 1980’s. An explanation of this can be found here. This Atari Punk Console Deluxe comes equipped with Theremin motion light sensors that control the sound (really, really cool), six what looks to be metal buttons that help you manipulate the sounds this console produces, a stutter switch… just all kinds of cool little additions that you wouldn’t normally find on one of these. I highly suggest taking a look at this seller’s Etsy page and reading up on this if this is something you happen to be interested in. There is no way I can explain this as well as he can.
There is even a video for it so you can see it explained and in action:
This retro recreational tool will cost you $145, not including the $8 – $15 shipping. All in all, if you have been wanting to recreate some of your glory days playing Atari, this will probably do it for you. It looks really interesting and unique with the features included with it, so why not give it a try?
Custom wall decals! they are great for designing a wall how you want it to showcase your interests. TrendyWallDesigns has taken eight characters from Atari games and turned them into colorful wall decals. You can get them in multiple colors, including a red called Terracotta. Maybe I’m uncultured swine, but I have never heard of the color Terracotta. Each piece is individual, so you are free to decorate the room with them how you please!
At the smallest size, 12″x 24″ you get eight 6″ Atari characters for $12. From there you can get 18″ x 36″ you get eight, 8″ Atari characters for $18, or you can get the largest size at 24″ x 48″ with eight pieces at 10 inches. This ships for $5 in the United States, and $20 everywhere else.
If you were or are a fan of Galaga, the old shooter arcade game by Namco, then this is a poster aimed at you! It’s always nice to see older games remembered. This is printed on thick matte paper, that the store claims is great for framing. The poster does look really nice.
This item comes in three different sizes, 11″ x 17″, 17″ x 26″, 24″ x 36″ at three different prices– $7, $12, and $22. Shipping in the United States is $3 and everywhere else is $9.
This beer handle is made from an actual Atari joystick, which is really cool! This would be a great game room accessory when you drink or have friends over! This would be a great little retro gift for your older gamer buddies.
Your own Atari Joystick Beer Tap Handle will cost you a bit more than an Atari joystick (which can be found on Amazon for ten bucks) at $40. This item unfortunately only ships to Canada and the U.S., with shipping at $10 and $6 respectively.
I can’t be the only one who thinks these look incredibly cute. Here you get fifteen soaps per package in fun Atari character shapes! This shop offers dozens of scents, ranging from Sandalwood to Banana Cream Pie. Seriously. I would put these by the sink in the bathroom for a unique touch in fun scents. Outside of these retro soaps, the seller offers quite a few soaps in other fun shapes.
The price for these isn’t too bad at $10, but the shipping is a little crazy for soap. Within the U.S shipping is $8, the U.K is $18, and almost anywhere else is $20. Makes me want to learn how to make my own soap.
