Forgotten and Unseen Electronics Part 4

For some reason all I can find for weird electronics lately is stuff to do with Nintendo.

In 1980 Japan released the AV Family Computer. In 1993 they released it again to North America as NES 2 (also known as the Top Loader). This might be where they got the idea of how the Super Nintendo would look. It also had no LED light on it so you couldn't tell if it was turned on.

looks like the very basic no frills model. i don't remember this one, but my hubby had one of the first nintendo systems. i loved it when they played gauntlet and if you blew up the food before someone got it it would say 'red warrior shot the food!' (or whatever your character was) like it was astonished. really funny. they hated to let me play because that amused me so i did it all the time. did i mention that i'm easily amused. LOL

Not only are LEDs costly, but they are distracting. Many a day have I been sitting here at my desk, staring in wonder at the indicator light on my computer. So how can a true gamer experience the marvel of games with that tiny light, always on, always watching...
