Retro gaming on a giant Game & Watch

Remember those old Game & Watch devices from Nintendo? Well, this large wall-mounted replica was made to serve as a fine piece of retro game art.

Created as a "hobby project" by a group of friends, the device makes use of an Arduino and Python script to emulate and project retro games (that can be found on pica-pic.com) on its roughly 16-inch monitor. Although those handheld games didn't feature 3D or multiplayer action, they're still a load of fun to play with.

Check out the video below to see an early build of the game controller used.

The project started out as a concept and has since been completed. We're hoping it makes it into retail--we wouldn't mind having this piece of gaming nostalgia in our office reception area.
