66 Space Invader-Inspired Creations

From Futuristic 8-Bit Board Games to Arcade Alien Confections

— February 5, 2013 — Tech
The classic arcade game enchanted an entire generation of gamers and these Space Invader-inspired finds are lasting impressions that help bring the game into the 21st century. A product of the 8-bit gaming wave, Space Invaders was an arcade staple during the 80s and became something of a pop culture phenomenon.

The gifts, gadgets and electronics you'll find within this collection are amongst some of the cutting-edge ways that the tiny invaders from space have been able to make it into the new millennium. The obsession-worthy game has become something of an underground obsession for the tech-savvy as well as with those who adore vintage gaming. While Space Invaders might not be in an arcade anymore, these products will help you keep a piece of gaming history close at hand.
