The mold works like a regular slip-cast mold; the blocks are made of plaster to absorb water from the ceramic. After some time, the remaining liquid is poured out, leaving a hollow vessel.
The RetroN 3 gaming system is compatible with NES, SNES and Sega Genesis cartridges. It comes with six controller ports - 2 for each of the previously mentioned consoles, so you can use your original controllers from your chosen system. Or if you like, it also comes packed in with two wireless controllers of its own. It's available now for $69.99 USD in either red or black (which actually looks more grey than black...).

PJ member Souly took part in a local 48 hour pixel animation jam hosted by Quickdraw Animation Society in May 2011.
The theme was to make an animation using 8-bit in any form or concept. Voxel, Graph-Paper, or Pixel art.
Participants could work as teams of 1-4 people.
The t-shirt company WeLoveFine is hosting an 8-bit contest.
