Space Invaders Couch looks uncomfortable

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on July 30th, 2010

This Space Invaders couch is awesome, even if it does look uncomfortable. It’s the perfect seat for playing the classic game and once you win, you can consider it your throne as you will have vanquished your alien foes.

Sadly, this sofa will likely never get made. Only myself and two other people would buy it. It was created by designer Igor Chak. It probably folds up and eats you if you lose the game.

Space Invaders messenger bag

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2010

This Space Invaders messenger bag displays your allegiance to human-kind and tells passers-by that you are not afraid to kill row upon row of aliens to get the high score. Sure, these are not official Space Invaders on this messenger bag, but they look good to me.

This vinyl messenger bag will carry your portable gadgets, maybe a small laptop, or an iPad. And you’ll be displaying your geeky side.

Space Invaders toaster

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2010

We love us some Space Invaders around here and this Space Invaders toaster is pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves. It was designed by Chris Naylor, a student designer in London.

This Space Invaders toaster toasts individual invaders into your bread so you can zap them with butter or jam and eat them up. Should this toaster ever go into production, we would buy it in a heartbeat.

Space Invaders Salt and Pepper shakers

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2010

Those aliens from Space Invaders have now set their sights on seasoning food at the dinner table. Probably because food doesn’t shoot back like we do.

Spice invaders if you will. Too bad they are not for sale yet. As soon as they become available, I’m buying like fifty of these and lining them all up on the table so I can play a 3D game. I’ll shoot them one at a time and watch the salt and pepper spray out of their alien bodies.

Awesome Space Invaders clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2010

Check out this amazing Space Invaders clock. Space Invaders may have been released about six years after Pong, that doesn’t mean that this Space Invaders clock uses newer technology than the Adafruit Pong Clock that has been circulating.

The two clocks actually share the very same guts inside, but the Space Invaders clock has updated firmware. This is one of the coolest Space Invaders clocks we’ve seen. I’d wake up to that. The fight between man and alien never looked so cool.

Space Invaders tights for the geek girl in your life

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2010

We love Space Invaders and if we could we would have our human women wear tights with the alien invaders on them. Well, now we can. These would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for that geek girlfriend.

They’re designed and distributed from Australia by Black Milk Clothing and they not only have the classic aliens from the game, they also show off your figure. $80 seems a bit steep, but putting a classic arcade game on your cameltoe? Priceless.

Space Invaders shower curtain

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2009

Space Invaders shower curtainLike Pac-Man, you just can’t have enough Space Invaders in your life. That includes the shower too. Now you can get clean and go pew pew pew as you battle the alien menace.

Of course it won’t actually move like in the arcade. You’ll have to use your imagination. Unless you’re the type to pee in the shower, in which case, fire away. Hope you can hit the UFO on top.

Space Invaders and Pac-Man art cars

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2009

Space Invaders and Pac-Man art carsPimping your ride with new shocks, struts, and a more powerful engine is all well and good, but if it can’t get by on looks alone what’s the point? These art cars are real lookers. These mini Coopers put the geek on the street my brotha.

Who wouldn’t love a Pac-man and Space Invaders themed car? These beauties were designed by Matt W. Moore, who clearly has a love of retro arcade games. This Pac-Man version is the best. Click through to see the Space Invaders car, which also rocks my geek socks.

Space Invaders retro tabletop bank now available in the US

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on April 3rd, 2009

Space Invaders retro tabletop game bankYou might remember the awesome Space Invaders Game Bank that we featured a while back. At that time it was only available in Japan. Good news, now there is a version that you can get in the US and Europe, although we’re not sure if it takes currency other than Yen.

To refresh your memory, when last we left it, this bank was accepting up to 80 100 yen coins, and each time you drop a coin in, another invader lights up. So, you are playing the game in reverse. It pays to have more invaders on screen.

Rare Space Invaders watch from Japan

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 30th, 2009

Rare Space Invaders watch from JapanLook what our friend Technabob found. Limited Edition Space Invaders LED watches that came out a few years back in Japan. Until now, you couldn’t find them from here. Look at that watch face, full of retro awesomeness. The watch will cost you $207, but any true geek is already getting their credit card ready.

The watch features a red dot-matrix display showing you the current time. Press the button and the “Space Invaders” scroll across the display, then a giant animated invader dances across. Then “Game Over”. You can’t actually play the game, but it’s still, an awesome watch.

Space Invaders retro tabletop game bank

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2009

Space Invaders retro tabletop game bankThe Japanese love banks. Like us, they also love them some Space Invaders. This latest offering from Takara Tomy may look like an actual sized tabletop Space Invaders game, but it’s really a miniature replica bank. It’s a unique take on the whole bank concept. It features an LCD screen that unfortunately is not playable, but acts as coin counter.

It will take up to 80 100 yen coins, and each time you drop a coin in, another invader lights up. So, basically you are playing the game in reverse. In this case, it pays to have more invaders on screen. It makes saving money not only fun, but retro and geeky at the same time. It will help you save up for those Space Invaders headphones or that Space Invaders Keyboard you’ve been wanting.

Space Invaders bendable keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on September 3rd, 2008

Space Invaders bendable keyboardThere’s nothing like shooting some Space Invaders who are trying to take over the world. It used to be that we popped a few quarters in the machine and shot them all to hell. These days it’s all about buying merchandise that bears the likeness of the 8-bit invaders. Some of which is actually practical.

Take this awesome looking bendable keyboard for example. It manages to be completely flexible while displaying the invading army, which is great for those on the go. It’s sealed, dustproof and spill-proof. If you have an accident, just easily wipe off the keys. Looks like it comes in black/white and pink/white. It will only cost you $39.

Space Invaders Kit Kat bars invade Japan

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on August 7th, 2008

Space Invaders Kit Kat bars invade Japan
This isn’t a gadget of course, but it does involve one of our favorite retro arcade games, Space Invaders. We love Space Invaders here at the ‘Brick and we’re a little jealous of our friends in Japan, where these Kit Kat bars are being produced in limited editions by Nestle for Taito arcades to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Space Invaders.

Putting Space Invaders on a Kit Kat should make it a bit easier to fend off the invading armada as you savor every delicious bite of their little bodies. I’d love to see more retro arcade candy bars hit the market, like a Pac-Man Reese’s cup and the like, but I wouldn’t be able to resist and I’d become a large geek instead of a trim geek.

Retro Space Invaders headphones

Retro Space Invaders headphones
Who doesn’t love Space Invaders? Answer: Those being invaded of course. Say you’re chillin’ in your room, by the gentle light of your Space Invaders lamp. Just outside your window, the moonlight gently illuminates their latest message to Earth. Soon the invasion will begin. But you don’t need to worry about that. Not after selling out your entire race. You will be spared and given your own island in the Bahamas.

What better way to drown out the sound of human extinction, then by donning a pair of retro Space Invaders headphones. They can be pre-ordered and will ship in mid-late October 2008 for $19.90. They’re free to traitors.
