Conservation, 3D Printing, and an Old Super Nintendo
One hundred years from now, it would be a true historical treat to be able to use 20th and 21st century digital entertainment by showcasing video game consoles in mint condition for interactive, educational, play. Arguably, it would be more enlightening, and informative for future audiences to be able to physically engage with the electronic artifacts instead of simply observing them behind glass. With the use of 3D technology, components of video game systems can be preserved, and then printed as needed for repairs. It will help keep them functional for future researchers, educators, and enthusiast.
