Atari Punk Console for die hard Atari fans

by Ally


For those of you that can’t get enough of all things that remind you of the good old days when Atari was the top of the line in gaming, here’s a gadget to pick up.  If the cute guys on the outside weren’t enough to draw you in, the settings above each knob are humorous enough to catch any classic gamer’s attention.  This Atari Punk Console keeps things pretty simple, but what it does, it does well.

If you’re not that familiar with the term Atari Punk Console or APC, these bad boys are analog noisemakers that feature sounds that will remind you of the classic Atari 2600 bleeps and bloops.  The box itself measures 6.5” long by 3” wide by 3” high.  The faceplate is aluminum and is chemically etched, while the outer part is made of untreated birch.  There’s an audio out jack for your headphones.  To keep it up and running all you’ll need is a single 9 volt battery.  You can purchase this for $45 on Etsy.  If the black knobs aren’t your thing there’s a second version through the same seller that has all silver metal knobs instead.
