Another case-mod

What video games would have looked like in the 1930s

I've never had much of a desire to buy a console video game system, but something like this might actually make me want one. It reminds me quite a bit of the way furniture and appliances looked before injection molding became a low cost alternative to more traditional construction techniques. Of course, if all appliances were made like this, you certainly couldn't buy a TV at Walmart for $60. Plastic appliances are so much cheaper because it's easier to run an injection molder than it is to employ a shop full of carpenters. Still, I like seeing appliances that have some visual appeal.
