Retro Gaming TV Design

Retro Gaming 4:3 LED screen design by Dave Delisle

Thought I’d make a TV design for what I was describing a few posts back. I’m sure 70’s and 80’s kids will recognize what’s going on here, so I won’t blab on and on. I call it the “Game TV”, a 4:3 display for old video game systems. The big switch in the base is decorative.

The display could even have a curve to replicate the old tube displays of CRT televisions. A built-in scanline feature is also a must, again to mimic CRT displays.

I put all the video inputs in the base of the stand, something TV manufacturers should consider. Not only would it be tidier for cables, but the screen could be even flatter in profile. Another approach would be to have all the inputs in a separate box (about the shape of a Blu-Ray player) that is tethered to the TV with a single cable, for people who want to hang their TV on a wall.
