We all love the Moomins don't we? And if you are reading this, I'm guessing you love a computer too. So this Moomins laptop sleeve could be a marriage made in heaven.
Recently, we featured an article on the best vintage camera apps for the iPhone. But what about photos you've already taken on a camera? Well, now there's Lo-Fi.
It follows a similar principle to the mobile apps, but operates on your PC or Mac to offer retro effects for existing photos. You can mix a wide range of effects from the film world, such as grain, colourful cross processing, lens blur, light leaks and frames. Combine more than one to create something unique. You can even hit a button for random effects, if you can't be bothered tweaking.
Along with editing, there's also easy sharing via Flickr and Facebook and if you want to try it out, there's also the option to try for free. If you like, the full download sells for $29.
We first saw this back in August, with the reissued Commodore 64 mixing authentic 80s-style looks with a modern specification. Well, it's now got a new name, the C64x, as well as some official photos and a confirmed set of features, including the option to revert to an '80s machine.
According to Wired, the new version has a dual-core Atom processor, 2GB memory, NVIDIA Ion2 graphics and a Blu-ray drive. There's also lots of USB and memory card slots, along with HDMI, VGA and DVI-D ports. But there's also some added authenticity.
Got an iPad? Want to give it a retro twist? You need the official Etch A Sketch case.
Yes, you can turn your expensive Apple touchscreen tablet into a 50-year-old toy, courtesy of Headcase, with the added bonus of the case protecting your investment thanks to the impact-resistant plastic construction.
All your slots and switches are left exposed (should you be worried) and a retractable kick stands allow you to either lay your iPad flat, or angle it for use with the iPad keyboard. Want one? You can pick it up online for $39. Sadly those knobs at the bottom don't offer up added control. Oh well.
No, this isn't some mad bedroom project, the modern-day Commodore think it's a great idea to stick a modern PC into an old Commodore computer, producing the Commodore PC64.
You've got to admire its bravery or stupidity. Delete as applicable. Anyway, this is an Intel Atom-powered PC featuring 4GB of memory, 1TB of HDD space, HDMI output, an optical drive (DVD/CD or Blu-ray) and of course, 'an exact replica' of the original beige C64 chassis. Before you ask, no it doesn't take tapes.
All Retro To Go writers will be required to use one when they go on sale just ahead of Christmas. Saying that, there's no official price as yet – if it's over £500, we might stick with our increasingly retro/old laptops.
So if you were celebrating 50 years of iconic footwear, what would you do? Well Dr Martens has decided to celebrate this event with a boot-shaped USB drive.
What can we say? well, we can say it looks like the boot that made the company both its name and fortune, a 24-hole boot that opens up to reveal a USB connector for your computer, while the inner boot packs 2GB of storage for any kind of file you need on the go.
The boot is just two inches tall and good for use with both PC and Mac. Price? That' $25 online.
