Pour a cold one without leaving the joystick

Introducing the combo arcade machine and beer dispenser.

eBay

We thought the " HomePub " was the ultimate domestic appliance for entertaining guests, but it's been blown away by something we'd never dreamed possible: a combination arcade machine and beer dispenser.

The "Gamerator" is a functioning game cabinet loaded with 187 arcade classics and--right where the coin slot would have been--a tap dispensing liquid gold from a refrigerated keg hidden in the back. Technabob says it has a 24-inch LCD to go with authentic joysticks, buttons, trackball and other details.

The machine might even fit well in with industrial-style furniture, as it foregoes the garish paint of the originals and opts instead for a sleek matte-black finish. But the most thoughtful feature of this ingenious appliance, which is up for sale on eBay, is the built-in cupholders.
