Tyler Bushnell is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for a modern arcade cabinet that can be used to play classic video games. Bushnell is the son of Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, meaning he grew up playing many different arcade games. In order to help more people access the games he grew up with, Bushnell decided to produce a modern system for arcade-style gaming.

The 'Polycade' is a vintage gaming system with a modern twist. While old arcade systems are still functional, they are large, heavy and only allow players to access one game. The Polycade solves these problems through the use of new technology. The modern gaming cabinet comes with 90 vintage arcade games and is capable of playing thousands more. The system is designed to be played individually or with friends, making it a fun social activity. Furthermore, the Polycade is a third of the size of a classic arcade system, which makes it ideal for home use.

With Christmas just around the corner, the Polycade may just be the perfect gift for the gamer on your list.
