Space Invaders Chessboard

NCS Synopsis  
   Tommy Hills of NMI Laser envisions a chessboard of the retro-gaming variety where the pawns are cone-headed Space Invaders and the court is made up of shields and invaders. The King is a gun turret (sensible) whilst the Queen is the UFO that passes overhead during the heat of battle. The Space Invaders chessmen are made of laser-cut fluorescent red and yellow acrylic carved into shape with an Epilog laser. Get yours at NMI Laser's Kickstarter project for US$65.00.

 PS3 White Console w/ 160GB - Sale US$339 free shipping

NCS Product Synopsis  
   Almost new and factory boxed Japanese Playstation 3 white console with 160GB hard drive. According to the piece of notebook paper inside the box with this unit, this console was shipped to a customer a couple of years ago but he noted that it sounded 'loud' so he returned it for another one. We checked it shortly after receiving it back but it sounded like our standard black slim PS3 that we use for testing.

   Since we couldn't sell it as 'new condition' anymore, we plugged it inside a box and stored it away. Then we found it again this week while doing our spring cleaning and decided to put it up for sale. The unit looks brand new and includes all of the original accessories and manuals. Price US$339 which includes free UPS Ground shipping in the USA.
