Atari may have stopped making consoles long ago, but you wouldn't know it by looking at all of these awesome Atari reinventions. The rise of retro love has led to a surge in Atari-inspired designs. What makes all of these Atari-inspired creations awesome is that most were made by dedicated DIYers.

Most of these awesome Atari reinventions make the age-old console playable again in ways never though possible. A portable hand-held Atari and an Atari fused with an Xbox are just two of the awesome re-imaginings found here. Even if you aren't a gamer, it's still a thing of beauty to see a person shred on a guitar made out of an old Atari or to see a lamp made from old cartridge labels and joysticks.
