Technolostagia: The term Technolostagia describes a sentimental longing for technological items from the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. This time it’s something I found in the Imaginarium shop. (available online in quite a few countries) They are now selling a couple of toys that catch the interest of many of the Atari generation:

The feeling of the famous Atari console from the 80’s has been reproduced quite well in two versions, the classic Joystick and an games hall console version. 2 Sprites and 128 Colors! They work on batteries and use an s-video connector to be able to hook it up to any TV set.

Both come with their own set of 10 games included:


  • Alpine Ski
  • Space Invaders
  • Birdie King
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Tube-It
  • The Legend of Kage
  • The Fairyland Story
  • Puzznic
  • Quix
  • Chak´n Pop

  • Pong
  • Asteroids
  • Breakout
  • Centipede
  • Gravitar
  • Circus Atari
  • Adventure
  • Missile command
  • Realsports volleyball
  • Yari’s Revenge
