When it comes to video games, we’re all for modern shooters and crazy expansive adventures that feel like you’re controlling a Hollywood blockbuster, but there’s something to be said for the old school classics and portables. Play Date is an upcoming handheld gaming system that’s completely modern while also feeling decidedly vintage. Developed in collaboration between software developers at Panic and the hardware engineers from Teenage Engineering (they’re the ones responsible for those cool, little Pocket Operator synths), Play Date is like a re-imagined Game Boy with all kinds of new tech. It’s got a beautiful black and white screen, bright yellow exterior, d-pad, A/B button and crank (Seriously. You pop it out and crank it forward/backward) controls, along with twelve brand new games from industry favorites that will be delivered one per week for a few months after launch. The best part–next to the crank controller, of course–is that all 12 games in Season 1 are free with purchase of the Play Date.

You don’t need to be an international man of mystery for there to be value in the ability to pick a lock. Whether you have a penchant for forgetting your keys or just want to be there for friends and neighbors, learning to pick locks is a worthwhile skill. But that doesn’t mean you should go practicing on your front door; officers might not like that. Instead, get yourself this Lock Pick Training Kit, which includes a set of tools and a see-through padlock so you can watch what’s happening while you practice.
