Geek or Chic

Nintendo’s Game & Watch series were all the rage in the ‘80s. They were sleek, hand-held devices you carried in your pocket, and as soon as you whipped it out, all your playground friends would be glued to your shoulder.

It’s hard to fathom that back then each console played only one game title — Donkey Kong, Snoopy, Parachute, and Super Mario Bros. among the best sellers — but kids enjoyed playing each for hours on end. (Attention-deficit disorder arrived much later.)

If you remember Game & Watch, you will have a burst of nostalgia when you these see this:

It’s a business card holder in the guise of the game console, so although you can’t work on your high-score, you can certainly impress (or shock?) employers with your awesome geek-cred. Created by Namco Bandai susidiary Ban Presto, it’s a sleek aluminum case with a dual facade: a classic Game & Watch on one side and an old school Nintendo game controller on the other.

Business cards are one of the most important tools of networking in Japan; presentation is everything. So if you’re looking to turn heads, a Nintendo card holder just may be your ticket.
