Nanoarcade Is The World’s Smallest Arcade Machine

nanoarcade

The Nanoarcade isn’t the first small arcade cabinet we’ve seen, with the iCade having been introduced to the market around 5 years ago. But unlike that device, the Nanoarcade doesn’t require the use of an iPad; it’s a standalone miniaturized gaming cabinet that measures 1/10th the size of a normal arcade. It’s able to play any J2ME game, which are Java-based titles that were popular before the advent of iOS and Android. They may not be the most advanced or exciting games on the planet, but there are some good titles in there and their age may help recreate some of that old-school retro feel that arcade cabinets are supposed to evoke anyway. If you want to get yours, you’ll have to pledge an early bird $39, or if you miss that, $49.

If you want to play games on your tablet or smartphone, you have two choices. Use the on-screen controls like a peasant. Or get yourself dedicated controller. The NES30 is as good as any, and some would argue even better since it’s shaped to look exactly like an NES controller of old. The only difference is it connects through Bluetooth and has reconfigurable buttons. Oh, and there are two additional action buttons and two shoulder buttons. Because, well, today’s games might need more than three buttons. But there you have it, for $29 you can party like it’s 1986.

Doritos-Flavored Mountain Dew Being Tested

dewitos-1

Frito-Lay and Pepsi Co. sure week to have been smoking up the good stuff lately. As part of a test at Kent State University in Ohio, college students have been offered the “opportunity” to try different flavours of Mountain Dew being cooked up. One of these was an ungodly mix of Doritos and Dew, cleverly called Dewitos. Yes, the drink is supposed to taste like a swig of Dew after a bite of Doritos. According to Reddit user ‘joes_nipples’ on Reddit, “It tasted like orange with a doritos aftertaste. It tasted like straight doritos afterwards though. Weirdest thing I’ve ever drunk.”

Other flavours on trial were Lemon Ginger and Mango Habanero, but we’re particularly intrigued by the Dewitos. Heck, we’d be down to trying some, if anyone wants to ship a few bottles to OhGizmo! HQ.

Everything in life comes at a price. The price you pay for not having the patience or the skill to build a magnificent 27.5″ tall, and 10″ square Super Mario Bros. floor lamp is an outrageous $2,200(USD). And let’s be honest, you know that if you had that kind of disposable income, you’d be it yesterday. Right?

This is a Mario Brothers themed Lego light that can also be used to hold your keys, wallet, sunglasses, whatever. The lights are LEDs and they are operated by remote control. Via the remote you can turn the light on and off, change the color, turn the brightness up or down, and the lights have some color changing effects as well.

It’s made by Etsy seller PugsnLegos, who fortunately has other similar (but smaller) items for sale at more reasonable prices.

Hit the jump for lots more pictures and a video of the thing in action.

Playing games on mobile devices with on-screen controls just isn’t as much fun as with a dedicated controller. So if you’re in the market for something like that, you might want to take a look at the NES30 Bluetooth Controller.

Normally you’d pay $40 for it, but it’s $29.99 with today’s deal.
