Pay homage to the history of video games by blocking out the light (and eliminating glare on your screen) with these colourful blinds from Direct Blinds.


Each blind features a retro gaming character like Pac-Man or a mushroom from Mario Bros. On top of that, the graphics are made up of controllers, joysticks, and handheld gaming systems from the earliest days of gaming up to today.



The final layer of geek-awesomeness: the images represent the pixelation that was the hallmark of these old-school games. Can you name every device pictured?

  1. These are fantastic!
    We need black out blinds for the nursery-to-be and these would be much more fun than regular black ones

    • Which link isn't working? I clicked the first one in the post and it's working fine. Which link isn't working for you?

      • Hi Ariel,
        I'm from Australia and using an Android (I don't know if that makes a difference) but when I tap on the words "direct blinds" under the pacman photo as well as the link in the first paragraph, i also get the'not found' message
