1983 was Peak ‘Electronic Plastic’ Year – Search this Visual Database of 1976-1990 Games & Electronics

You’ve seen the book but have you seen the website? With ‘prefab search options’ you can quickly glance through decades of ‘electronic plastic’ games and electronics from 1976 through 1990, broken down by categories like battery (LR44, AA, even solar), size, color, year, and form factor (handhled, tabletop, and even watch games!). Oh and screen types (VFDs! One ‘colour LCD’ game’s origin year is unknown!). Basically this is an office killer, and depending on your age potentially full of nostalgic memories.

Check out the Bandai ‘bot where the handheld game is built into the body of the robot:

Amazing!

Check out the full database – of many hundreds of entries – here; check out the real-world book here.

And kudos to David for the tip on this website!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
