Reunited and it feels so good

A couple of good things came out of cleaning out my mom's house for an estate sale:  I found some old missing power adapters! 

 

First, for our original home video game system:  Unisonic Pong.  I think we got this around 1976 or 77.  I've had the console for a long time and it works fine with a universal adapter.  But now that I have the original power adapter, it just feels more complete. 

 

Here's a pic of the console with it's original power adapter:

And the old adapter next to the surrogate universal adapter:

Next is a little less exciting to most, nirvana to me.  The power adapter for a really old Unisonic calculator.  The calculator works fine with batteries.  But now it is complete once again.

 

The full set:

And the calculator in it's functional green glory:

Rad. I've actually never seen a pong console in real life, I don't think. 

I've said it before...but for as popular as they were in the late '70's, they sure are hard to find now.  Since there were so many different models and brands, there's probably not a lot of nostalgia for them.  Plus, I'll bet most of them got thrown away. 

 

I have several.  The most prized being the Atari (Sears) stunt cycle and video pinball.  The Unisonic model above is special because it has analog joysticks -- not just paddles.
