A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, there was a time when kids would leave their homes if they wanted to play video games. They would gather at gaming cafes, then called “arcades,” to drop coins into the large wooden boxes that housed individual games such as Ms. Pacman, Street Fighter or Frogger. Yes, we hope you remember this time, because we sure do and miss it too.
What’s your idea of fun? That’s the question that Lenovo put out to the modding community and the response from Dean Liou of Envador.com is easily one of the coolest. On display at CES 2011, Liou’s creation is a mini arcade cabinet that is really “just” a laptop dock.
