Couchmaster Lets You Game All Day, Stay On Your Sofa

nerdytec_couchmaster_1

If you’ve built a sweet gaming rig, but have come to realize that sitting at your desk all day isn’t the most comfortable of propositions, you might want to start looking at options, like the Couchmaster. As long as you’re ok with playing on your TV, the Couchmaster gives you the ability to feel just as if you were on your desk but while sitting in the comfort of your sofa.

The Couchmaster comes in two main variants, Basic and Pro. The main difference between the two is that the Pro version’s desk has holes and hidden panels for cable management. There’s also an even more pro Pro version that comes with a 4-port 900mA USB 3.0 hub and a 15ft USB 3.0 extension cable. All Couchmasters come with a pair of small bags, as well as stick-on Velcro strips for attaching the wrist rests and bags.

It’s a smart product that caters to a very specific niche, but anyone in this boat will likely be delighted to find out this exists. The convenience doesn’t come cheap, however. “Nerdytec sells the Couchmaster Basic for €99 (~$110 USD), the Couchmaster Pro for €129 (~$140 USD) and the Couchmaster Pro with USB hub and extension cable for €149 (~$170 USD). If you just want the Couchmaster Pro’s desk and not the armrests, you can get that too for €79 (~$90 USD).”

Make Some Kind Of Statement With Nintendo Drinking Flasks

ilmn_game_flasks

We’re not sure exactly what you’re trying to say if you go around taking sips of bourbon from a plastic NES cartridge, but it’s nice to know that you can, since Thinkgeek now sells these awesome 6oz flasks. Perhaps you want people to know you’re a fan of retro gaming, and of drinking, and that you’re the sort of person they’d totally want to hang out with because who doesn’t love a retro gaming drunk? Amirite? The best part are the names: “Drunk Hunt”, “Fine Ale Fantasy” (coming soon), and “The Legend of Drink”. Get it? They’re drinking/gaming puns… Yeah… ok, we’ll show ourselves out. But hey, if your interest is piqued, just know they’re $20 a pop.

Oh, and also, considering the design, it might be hard to take actual sips from this flask, so maybe you pour yourself a shot or two, ok? Ok.

Ain’t nobody got time for that! Geez, just show me where to point my gun, rinse, and repeat.

Anyone else can’t stand role playing games?

Waka Waka: A Pacman Piercing

This is just too cool. There isn’t much to say, since the image kind of says it all. It’s a Pacman piercing, which could easily be expanded by simply adding more dots between the ghost and Pacman. This particular one was done by Precision Body Piercing in Marquette, MI (their Instagram).

Old School Blue Willow Plates Come Complete With Game Boy Graphics

gameboy_willow_1

Grandma has these plates! Heck… everyone’s grandma has these plates. Only not quite these exact ones. See, this collection is designed to look just like the traditional Blue Willow plates you’ve seen, untouched, in your grandmother’s display cabinet for years, only it’s got a retro gaming twist. Called 8-bit Willow, they are adorned with scenes from Game Boy classics like Legend of Zelda or Pokemon, only in such a discrete way as to not disturb the classic Willow appearance. Created by UK artist Olly Moss, the plates are unfortunately not for sale nor does there appear to be any plans to make them so.

This Toaster Is A Fully Functional Nintendo Console

nintendo-toaster

Modding consoles to fit into formats never intended by their initial manufacturers is nothing new, but Jarno Kotavuopio’s Nintendo Toaster is a thing of beauty and worth a quick mention. Yes, it’s fully functional and obviously you turn the console on by pressing the lever. Even the controller is modded with some LEDs, and he made cartridge covers that look like actual toast!

If you’re looking to buy this mod, or convince Jarno to make you one, it appears he “doesn’t have time” for that. Sadly.
