The item to guess was a Picture that was altered., for this Fark competition. There were almost 100 correct entries! I was impressed by many of the emails that described each component on the console. Another neat fact is that a few Hacked Gadgets readers actually operated those very consoles!

  2. Jesse Says:

    Heh, I actually lol’d at this.
    But I don’t want to really say too much, as I know exactly what this is.
    I don’t want to give anything away.

  3. Jack Says:

    Forgive me if I sound stupid, but doesn’t the caption below the image tell you what it is?

  4. Mike Says:

    I’ve seen this picture before…

  5. follower Says:

    Oooh, I wanna win this one–cos *I’m* not getting one of these under the tree for me… 🙁


    P.S. Brought to you by the “and if I can’t win *this* competition…” comment brigade. 🙂

    I am with jack… I am confused… If the caption tells us what it is, then what is it that we are supposed to guess?

  7. Mr. Maigo Says:

    Why don’t old men look like that these days? Really, WTH? He doesn’t seem to have the extra skin they get now. Or are there cloths line clips on the back of his head?

  8. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hey Jack and Marks256,

    All may not be as they seem. That is as far as I can go. 🙂
    Good luck with your guess.

    since this contest is already closed, I’d like to point out that this is a photoshop. The reflections are all wrong. Definitely photoshopped. I can tell from having seen quite a few shops in my day.
