I have to thank our friends at Gamesetwatch for posting about Jason Scott's scans of an amazing pre-Colecovision Product Catalog from Coleco. It's a great catalog for anyone interested in electromechanical toys and what kind of products the earliest videogame consoles had to compete with. While some of these items are videogames (Marksman, Colortron), there are also cool electronic toys like "Good Puppy," a dog that actually simulates eating. Eww. Robot fans will also want to check out a new column at GSW called Robot-Chan. The first column is about a Japanese videogame series is affecting the design of the robots it features. It's an interesting read for anyone who likes playing robots in games and playing with robots IRL. I think I got that right...
