If you remember what that means you probably also remember Ultima, Lode Runner, Archon and all those other classic 80's video games from the Commodore era.
 
This 3D printed steel belt buckle is a tribute to the fun we had as kids growing in the earily days of video game development. Little did we know at thet time that it would turn into such an important shared cultural experience.
 
Design to fit a standard loop and hook (snap on) belt. Go ahead and wear this with pride - its because of Commodore computer systems and others like it that we are who we are today.
Why
The Commodore 64 made a huge impact on my life as a kid growing up in the 80's. This was my gateways into computers and graphics and in many ways influences my career.

Who
The was designed for 3D print by Craig Walker.
 
Where
Designed in Toronto, printed in New York by Shapeways

When
Summer 2015
 
How
Design using Fusion 360. This allowed me to accurately replicate the shape in 3D quickly. Allowing me to easily control the thickness of the walls to make the buckle strong enough for day to day use and affordable enough for one off 3D printing
