Enjoy Space Invaders on a mini arcade machine

Despite its small size, we wouldn't mind risking finger cramps to enjoy some good old alien blasting on this little arcade console.

Wish you had the space in your home to house an arcade cabinet? YouTube user "vcoleiro1" might just have the solution. He's built himself a Space Invaders-themed mini arcade console.

This little piece of technology was made using 6mm medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and decorated with graphics from the original arcade machine, which lends an authentic touch. Despite its small size, we wouldn't mind risking finger cramps to enjoy some good old alien blasting on this.

Apart from Space Invaders, this little device will accept almost any Game Boy Advance cartridge. Of course, playing the turn-based Pokemon on this won't exactly have the same effect as playing Tomohiro Nishikado's 1978 classic shooter.

Those interested in buying these little wonders can email their creator at vcoleiro1@gmail.com. Watch the video to see it in action.
