How Video Game Inspired Gear and Gadgets

There is no doubt that video games have a large influence on our society. There are millions of dollars that are spent in games, consoles, and accessories every single year. Even our cell phones have become a hub for the gaming world. This is why no matter what store that you walk into you will be able to find something that has been inspired by one of our favorite video games.

The Mario Coin Light

Do you remember how you had to track down that one coin box that you could keep hitting repeatedly in order to collect extra coins? Now you can bring that fun home with you with a hanging lamp. The on/off switch is in the bottom of the light, so you simply push the bottom in order to turn it on or off.

Gameboy Watch

Do you miss holding that green screen machine known as the Gameboy in your hand? It was one of the first mobile gaming devices, and while it is long gone popularity wise it is anything but forgotten.

Pac-Man Bottle Opener

You may miss the trusty old Pac-Man that you knew so well from your teen years, but just because you have gotten a little older does not mean you still cannot enjoy him. Instead of heading to the arcade to wrap yourself into taking out all of the ghosts, just head to your kitchen and get the assistance of Pac-Man to crack open your favorite beer.
