Retro Gaming Machine with Raspberry Pi and SNES Case

I’ve been working on a Raspberry Pi based retro gaming machine for a few months now. It has been a bit of an extended process waiting for all the various pieces to fall into place. I am currently to a spot where it all seems to be working pretty well. I’ve got a few last... Read more »

Online Spirograph

Remember the Spirograph? Those odd little notched pieces of plastic that you used to make swirly drawings. I know I had one or two of them growing up. Like all of us, I’m sure you wished that you could continue to make those swirls yet today without digging through your parents’ attic to find your... Read more »

Getting Nolstalgic Over the Danger Sidekick

Chris DeSalvo recently posted a great article, The future that everyone forgot: Some of the work we did at Danger. The article covers the history of Danger, the company that created the Sidekick.

Goat Simulator

This is a real game, not some joke from The Onion. The premise of the game is exactly what you’d expect. You run around as a goat causing mischief, doing goat things… hilarity ensues. You can pre-order it at their site. It’s coming to Steam on April 1st (April Fools joke?). I’m very tempted to... Read more »
