Profile of a whimsical arcade machine maker

I got to know cartoonist/engineer Tim Hunkin while I was editor-in-chief of Make magazine (here are some of the articles he wrote for me there). Tim has a great sense of humor, and one of the ways he expresses it is by building funny coin-operated amusements with names like “Pet or Meat,” “Autofrisk,” and “My Nuke - Personal Nuclear Reactor”. He has two arcades in England and I would love to visit them sometime.

Here's a longer profile of Tim's work:

Here' the video for "My Nuke":
