Love video games but think they’re just a bit too easy for you? Obsessed with performing a Tommy-like feat of arcade brilliance but afraid of wearing a bandana to simulate blindness? Have we got a deal for you! For the low price of free, you can grab an “Asteroids” arcade cabinet that still works, except that it doesn’t show anything on the screen.

Yes, just think of the ways you can impress your more gullible friends by telling them how good you’re doing at the game. And how those sounds that sound like your ship blowing up are actually just sounds of you blowing up asteroids real good. The person giving this away says you this could be good for “art,” but we have no idea how that’s a feasible idea. We guess you could set this up somewhere, charge people to play it and then have them describe what they think is happening. That sounds like art.
