Nucleus arcade table at The Ideal Home Show

You may have seen on our Twitter or Facebook feed that we have a Nucleus arcade table at the Ideal Home Show this year. (It’s on until Sunday 3rd April btw) The Nucleus featured in the Ideal Smart Home powered by Virgin Media.

We visited on the first day to make sure everything was good with the table on the stand. After all it would be getting a good hammering over the 17 days! We met the great staff manning the Virgin Media Smart Home and maybe even had a quick game on the table!

Every day at the Ideal Home Show in the Virgin Media Smart Home there were multiple presentations on some ideas on creating a smarter home. We got ourselves over for the first one, which included special guest Suzi Perry. So I couldn’t resist challenging her to a game of Bubble Bobble.

Suzi was only there for the first presentation, along side the amazing Lee talking the crowd through some of the items within the smart home. Lee was then to soldier on alone for the rest of the 17 days.

Goldfish – We Come Together

This is a little out of the ordinary for a blog post, but this track from Goldfish is jammed with retro games scattered with chiptune. Great tune with lots of bass… well ‘All Your Bass’ in fact! Anyway, a great track with an amazing video. Check it. Now. Or I’ll call the Jazz Police.

I’m sure there will be more, but I managed to spot Elevator Action, Pitfall, QBert, Excitebike, Bubble Bobble, Streetfighter 2, Pacman, Donkey Kong, Duckhunt, Bomberman, Sonic plus a sly Ninja Turtle.

There were also a couple of nods to newer games, such as Lego Star Wars, Katamari and Angry Birds. Oh, and The Orange Box

Musical Rumba series coffee table

Now this is what I call an interactive table! Created by Tor Clausen, you can choose from a range of sizes, starting at 2×2 going up to 4×4. The table incorporates various bongos, percussion, bells and whistles ensuring there is never a dull moment when you have friends over. However, once the children find out, there may be a few regrets…

Not essential for your bible-studies group. You can see and hear the table in action at musical furnishings. He has plenty of other projects listed such as the Musical Duet Farm Table with twin xylophones and the Musical Cedar Garden Bench.
