Game & Watch Devices For a New Generation: Solar Powered

If you are like me, a child of the 80s, you probably played with one of those Game & Watch devices from Nintendo. Some of the ones that I played were Octopus and Parachute. While fun, these were hardy little devices that withstood handling by children and practically ran for hours thanks to the LR44 button cells that powered them.

Now, nearly 30 years after the release of Chef, Parachute and Octopus, TakaraTomy has released a smaller version that can be used as a keychain and more importantly, are solar powered. Yup, no batteries required and each of them measure a minuscule 3.5 cm (h) * 6 cm (w). Each of these are going for USD 9.90 and if you are interested, check out the links below:
