Tiny arcade machines for your train set


Awwww, they’re adorable little video game cabinets! Choose from seven styles: Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, Zaxxon, Phoenix, and Defender – all for $7.49 each. They’re technically for use on your model train set but if you, like me, don’t have a model train set, maybe you could just buy them for the hell of it and scatter them throughout your home.

The tiny machines don’t actually work but maybe someone could fit a teeny, tiny OLED screen inside one or more of the cabinets and load them up with emulator software. Or maybe not. That seems like an awful lot of work considering how tiny the controls would be. Plus, you’d have to mint teeny, tiny quarters to get the full effect. And maybe build a diorama of an arcade, then make it go out of business and replace it with a Forever 21 or an Orange Julius.
