More Archaic Than Arcade: Mechanical Donkey Kong!!

If you thought the game Donkey Kong was old school in itself, then wait till you see this mechanical version of the game which is more archaic than it is arcade!!

It really does look like a scene from the cult game has been whipped out of the console and brought to life in the real world.
Ah it’s brought back loads of fluffy memories of the hours I wasted playing Donkey Kong as a child and the insufferable devastation I felt when it broke!

Donkey Kong Shelves

Before Mario, there was Donkey Kong. You might remember playing a round of two of Donkey Kong down at your local arcade in the 1980s, when he first hit the gaming scene. Donkey Kong was one angry gorilla who hurled barrels targeting Mario (who was known as Jumpman back then) as he climbed ladders and hopped his way to save his princess.

To commemorate Mario’s humble beginnings and the first addictive game to hit the market, designer Igor Chak drew up this concept of a Donkey Kong-inspired shelf, complete with ladders and rails on the shelves to boot. He envisions the individual sections as being crafted with light carbon fiber with anodized aluminum pixels and steel rods holding the entire thing together.Continue Reading
