Light-Up Arcade Belt Buckle Inspired by Classic Gaming Coin Slots

This awesome new light-up arcade belt buckle by If Industries was inspired by the classic gaming coin slots we’ve probably all shoved FAR too many quarters down.

The arcade buckles look and work just like the ones on the machines you grew up with. Turn on the light, and they’re indistinguishable. The authentic parts are provided by electronics manufacturer Wells-Gardner.

And of course, you’ll always have the fun option to ‘PRESS TO REJECT’ should you face an unwanted attempt at a pick-up. The light-up buckles are available now on Etsy.

Octavi Navarro’s Pixel Art Illustrations are Full of Hidden Humor

Spanish artist Octavi Navarro’s Pixel Art series of illustrations remind us a lot of scenes from classic gaming. Limited by his medium, he was forced to put extra thought into each narrative. The pixelated creations depict cross-sections of buildings as well as scenes for nature, wartime, and even space. Study each one carefully, as he’s done a very nice job of adding a touch of humor to each piece.

With the painstaking amount of work that goes into pieces such as these (each contains thousands of pixels), Octavi had plenty of time to thoroughly plan every little bit of interaction among the subjects he portrays.

Though it may not have the advanced finish of today’s computer imaging, it shows that with the proper talent an artist can evoke emotion and tell an interesting story no matter the limitations of his medium.

See more of Octavi’s pixel illustrations as well as his other work by visiting his Behance page or by following him on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook.

F**ktionary Card Game: Just How Dirty is Your Mind?

With the holidays only a few months away, an endless amount of boring games will soon be making their debut. Rather than test who knows the most world capitals, why not try actually having some fun? The F**ktionary card game will put you and your loved ones to the test, finally answering the question everyone’s been wondering about: just how dirty is Grandma’s mind?

The game is played by picking a card and repeating the word or phrase out loud. Other competitors write down their definition of what it means (the dirtier the better!) and then vote on who came up with the best one. What people will dream up, versus what things actually mean, provides hours of hilarious entertainment! Each box contains 300 playing cards printed on premium stock with a rule sheet, score card, blank paper and pencils — everything you need for a dirty night of fun.

The F**ktionary card game is available now on Amazon.
