So There’re These Things Called PixelBlocks…

I’d seen them at ThinkGeek for quite a while, but I never put in an order. PixelBlocks, they are. For whatever reason, I finally got around to grabbing a 2000-block pack (12 colors) last week. By design, they’re great for rendering into plastic what one might find on a computer screen. But given the limited palette of home computers of years past, these blocks seem ideally suited to bringing to life classic retro computing scenes. They’re pretty great.

It’s a modest first go, but the above little character definitely brings to my mind memories of some pretty fun moments behind a joystick, back in the mid-80s. Anyone know who he/she is? Anwser correctly and I’ll mail you one of my blocks. (I won’t really.)
