A game collector from Ontario, Canada named Syd Bolton felt his home was missing a little something. He contacted designer Erin McFadden, who took a plain old coffee table and turned it into a gamer's dream--a Pac-Man Coffee Table.

The Pac-Man Coffee Table features components of the well-known retro game that everyone not living under a rock could recognize and relate to.

Implications - As technology progresses faster and faster, people are looking to nostalgic comforts to provide a sense of stability and security. As such, many retro-themed products are emerging that specifically target this demographic. Retro products have thus become chic and widespread amongst pop culture enthusiasts.
