Wanted: A Clockwork Pac-Man


Wondering what steampunk has done for us lately, besides fill our streets with folks in absurd, overpriced aviator goggles? Behold the Pactuator, a gear-filled, hand-cranked Pac-Man. Its creator, Johnathan M. Guberman, tells Boing Boing that the device is “going to be part of a larger project: a playable, mechanical Pac-Man cabinet, called ‘Pac Machina.'” Amazing. But we can’t wait for the game. We want the Pactuator right now. Please, Guberman, start mass producing these babies. And how about some Ms. Pac-Man while you’re at it? Watch the clockwork Pac-Man and lust after one of your own below.
