How to Make a Giant Atari Joystick Lamp


How-to website instructables has wowed me again with a great step by step build of a Giant Atari Joystick lamp. The lamp, built by seamster, would be the perfect accessory for the your retro game room and can be completed in 15 steps. The joystick looks fairly complicated to put together, but just to be able to push that giant red button and have the lamp turned on would make it worth the effort. And remember that the lampshade on this bad boy could be completely customizable. I would suggest that you use Activision’s greatest hits with my favorite, River Raid, featured prominently.
