Laser Cut Florescent Acrylic Space Invaders Chess

The good people of NMI laser want to merge 8-bit space invaders with the classic game of chess. They cut each piece with an epilog laser that snaps into the standing base that you can play on the (also) laser etched chess board. Freakin' sick, right?

You can jump on their kickstarter here and get your invading chess game ON.

World's Smallest Functional Space Invaders Arcade Machine

A Space Invaders arcade mod that stands only 7 inches tall and 3 inches wide might be one of the coolest desktop video gaming gadgets you and I have ever seen. The mini joystick and button were purchased from Digikey.com and integrated into a Game Boy Advanced SP motherboard.  Each of the decals / side graphics were found at arcadeartlibrary.com which were photoshopped then printed to fit the tiny form factor.

Since this actually runs GBA game cartiridges, you can actually play any GBA game that you want on it (which are loaded into the back of the unit). But, lets be honest with ourselves here, the Space Invaders Arcade should ONLY place Space Invaders. The build itself apparently took Victor from Australia months to complete, and we thank him for the effort.
