Modern Fossils for Retro Fans.

These modern fossils are made from actual archaic technology that was once cutting-edge. Most of these examples were discovered in the United States, although the various species are represented all over the world.

Crafted by Christopher Locke and available from his website The Heartless Machine.

“It has been shown recently that the true demise of most of these specimens came from runaway consumerism and wastefulness at the high end of the food chain.”

First seen around 1989, this Dexteludicrum (or Game Boy) has been found throughout the world. The Dexteludicrum obviously shares some of the same traits as Dominaludus, but includes some extra components.

Anaticula persequor is more commonly known as “Duck Hunt Gun” or “Nintendo Zapper.” This specimen is seen most often alongside Dominaludus nintendicus, although it is unclear exactly what their relationship was. Fossil records imply that this species was an isolated occurrence, seemingly without a predecessor or any significant offspring.

First appearing around 1900, this “rotary phone” stuck around for a long time. Although the circumdactylos has since become almost extinct, it is still a recognizeable icon, and images of it are still common today.

The “Boom Box” has predominantly been found in very close proximity to Asportatio acroamatis, and it seems possible that it is a distant relative of Ambulephebus sonysymphonia.

There are more designs, and inventive descriptions, available to purchase from the website.
