Modular Arcade

If you're not familiar with Chris McVeigh's modular arcade series you need to be. While the coin-op arcade seems to be a thing of the past, you can relive those blipity blopity sore thumb days with these rad little machines. This year the collection expands with some new designs and they look absolutely awesome. You can build your own with free instructions (and dozens of others) at or preorder the kit right now. *Quarters not included

Modular Arcade (Gen 2)

Childhood In The Basement

I can remember vividly when the first Atari 2600 came to my house. We played Tank and Space Invaders until we saw them in our sleep. And we pondered endlessly why PacMan looked so terrible and went "bonk bonk". This MOC by Chris McVeigh is not only a marvel of clever building, it's a bona fide time machine, capable of serious doses of nostalgia. And the best news is you can have one for yourself on March 9th from his website!
