Pactuator: A Hand-Cranked Pac-Man [Video]

If you thought the original Pac-Man was retro, get a load of the Pactuator. The creator hopes to expand on the concept to create an entire working game called Pac Machina.

I call it the Pactuator. I kind of fell in love with the little guy, but it’s going to be a (long) while before the game is ready. In the meantime I wanted a nice way to display and play with it (and keep myself inspired to finish the full project). To that end, I drew up a feeble pastiche of a Victorian frame with a Pac-Man motif, laser engraved it in some wood, and made a little display, complete with a hand-crank.

Check out the video after the break.
