Things have changed a lot since the days of Atari and Famicom, haven't they? Among the changes is the fact that there exists a website that will dismantle any gadget the team gets its hands on. Over the last few days iFixit has been tearing apart old consoles, including the Atari 2600, the Nintendo Famicom, the RCA Studio II, and the Magnavox Odyssey 100.
Check out the pictures of these retro gadgets with all their bits hanging out. Click through to iFixit if you want to learn more about how they went about it.
So much more simple...
