I really want this little tiny Space Invaders machine


3:15 PM on 07.12.2011



So cute! I'm a sucker for miniature things, especially when they're somehow related to gaming. Space Invaders isn't my favorite retro game, but this little cab is so cute that I don't really care what they put on it or on it. I just want it! 

This seven-inch playable model of a Space Invaders cabinet uses the innards of a Game Boy Advance SP. The tiny joystick and buttons are little marvels, as are the art details on the cab. The builder did a beautiful job of scaling the art down The best part? You can replace the cartridge to play many other games. The back cover of the cab is magnetic and can easily be removed.

The builder, YouTube user vcoleiro1, says that he'll actually build and sell more of these for those interested. I wonder how much he wants for one. I'd kill for a mini Dig Dug cabinet.
