Sega And Nintendo Smartphone Docks

Sega and Nintendo smartphone chargers by Dave Delisle

Here’s a pair of smartphone dock designs that pay homage to a time when we plugged cartridges into other cartridges to play games. Back in the early 90’s such adapter cartridges like Sonic & Knuckles, the Super Game Boy, and Game Genies were pretty cool, you kids will have to take my word for it.

You can purchase a high-res poster of this map here.

New Game Boy 3rd Party by davesgeekyideas

I had somewhat of an ordeal acquiring a Game Boy Advance in the last few months. Rose Colored Gaming is sold-out (they can no longer acquire back-lit screens for GBAs), I also had no luck on Craigslist, a few used video games stores had nothing available; it was almost enough to make me quit!

Here is a fun trinket for your desk: a Zelda treasure chest that features a Rupee floating in mid-air. This is made possible by magnetic levitation, something you’ve probably seen before (like that floating Tardis). Read the rest of this entry
