Etsy artist selling wallets made out of Atari carts

I have never, in my 28 years of life, had a wallet that would be considered fashionable or cool. I also have a severe lack of wallet organization skills, which leads to important credit cards getting sandwiched in-between retail store discount cards and cash being buried under unnecessary bar receipts. In short, I've spent my entire wallet-owning existence with a real-life Costanza wallet. Fortunately, a new Etsy store has opened today that may be the cure to my many money-holding ills.

Niles Zwolack, known on Etsy as "Nilesz" has created wallets made out of Atari cartridge husks. Inside, the cart is separated into two sides -- one has a money clip, while the other can house up to eight credit cards. The store selection has over 60 game carts-turned-wallets available for purchase, running the gamut from well-known (Pole Position, E.T) to obscure (Demons to Diamonds). Games with art on them run US$55, while the early-era games with text-only covers run US$35. No word yet on whether the store will carry wallets for alternatively-shaped games like one of my personal Atari favorites, Demon Attack.

Even if they don't, I'm still thinking of retiring my freebie promotional wallet for Pure that has a tear in the leather where I yanked out the gaudy wallet chain. It does have some charm, though. Right?

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
