Few designs can be called timeless and iconic enough to translate well into miniature versions of themselves. Horses is clearly the most important, but the ThinkTiny, a miniature version of the Lenovo ThinkPad comes pretty close. Created by Paul Klinger, the ThinkTiny uses the iconic red TrackPoint nub of the laptop as a joystick for classic arcade games such as Hose, Tetrisand Lunar Lander.

The small laptop runs on one ATtiny1614 microcontroller and has a 128 x 64 OLED screen. It is all housed in a 3D-printed housing that is complete with a glowing "Think" logo. Unfortunately, the ThinkTiny cannot be executed fate or Crysis, but there is a neat little Mandelbrot fractal explorer.

Gizmodo says Klinger not going to sell the ThinkTiny, which is understandable given the production time of the toy, not to mention the fact that it could incur some minor lawsuits from Lenovo. But if you want to try to make it yourself, Klinger has generously posted the full code and design files on him GitHub page. The code can also be used to create one TinyPC, a gaming PC that runs most of the same games as the ThinkTiny, plus an extra Break out game. This lights up and changes color as the games become more difficult.
