Boy and I are nowhere near the having kids phase, but I have talked on here before about how I think having a video game nursery would be 8 different kinds of awesome.
Anyway, I was browsing the internet this weekend and I discovered that there was actually a very cool dad who raised the geekery bar on me – he built his little girl her very own arcade machine!
Made on a kid-friendly scale (80% the full size), the machine father James made his lovely daughter Bella is decked out with a custom light up marquee and features 250 different arcade classics on it!
Working on the machine since November 2006, James kept a pretty detailed record of his proceedings, so if you’re interested to see a step by step breakdown of how he managed it, you can check out his production blog here.
Way to go, geekdad! You are officially my hero! 🙂
