Because our memories of playing Super Mario Bros. and blowing into cartridges is so fond, the tributes to the Nintendo NES Game Console have been plentiful. Enter, The Nintoaster, a fully-functional NES made from a vintage toaster.

Brought to us by Finnish artist, Jarno Kotavuopio, the console turns on when the plunger is set down, and will play all of your favorites from childhood. Do not put toast in it though… No amount of blowing on the bread will make it toast.

Tic Tacs As Vintage Video Games


Tic Tacs have been around so long, that people were enjoying them when Pac-Man was still fun. To help pay homage to the antiquated technology and breath mint, the Miami Ad School created a series of ads of vintage video games made from Tic Tacs.

From candy Pac-Man and Snake to an Arkanoid board, the ads were probably fun to assemble. Not more fun than actually playing Arkanoid though… those bricks were crazy.
