Nothing says retro like a custom, wooden Atari 2600. This guy in Turkey, who goes by “retro_mood”, created a portable Atari 2600 that works with the old school cartridges and includes just about all the functionality of the original console. Plus, he added a pause function somehow. That wasn’t heard of back in the day kiddies.
The woodwork on this thing is impressive. The base has a nice grooved design to it and all the controls and display are edged in wood. Some of the buttons are even wooden.
Unfortunately, it’s going for over $1,200 on ebay. That’s a little too rich for my blood. I’ll dust off the bad boy who’s been resting in my closet for the past 30 years.
