Arcade machines are awesome. There are some truly amazing arcade bars out there, too. But can you imagine having an arcade in your home, man cave, or playroom? With something like the machines that Arcade1Up offers, that’s entirely possible.

QVC is actually offering an excellent deal on Arcade1Up’s Partycade, which includes 8 games in 1. You can save over $90, and grab it for $210 with $10 for shipping and handling. It’s a Countercade unit that can either sit on a countertop or bar, or you can mount it to the wall — and it comes with mounting hardware. Both the Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man variants are on sale.

Nevermind Atari’s new video game themed hotels, with an Arcade1Up cabinet you don’t even have to leave your home to play some classic games. What’s more, the Arcade1Up Partycade includes 8 games in 1, or rather it’s 8 machines in one small Countercade unit.

The included games are as follows:

  • Pac-Man: Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Pac & Pal, Galaxian, Galaga, Dig Dug, Xevious, and Mappy
  • Ms. Pac-Man: Ms. Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man, Dig Dug 2, Pac & Pal, Pac-Man Plus, Galaxy, Galaxian, and Dig Dug

As you can see, both include 8 games each. Most, if not all games, support one or two players. You’ll get a unique on-screen game selection menu when the machine boots up, with coinless operation, and an easy-start system. The volume is adjustable, with a 17-inch color LCD screen to show all the action. Each arcade cabinet has original artwork on the exterior in the style you choose, with a clear deck protector included to keep the main player section safe and clean. The unit can mount on a wall, on the back of a door, or it can rest on a tabletop or counter — entirely up to you. The mounting hardware is included, you’ll just need the tools to hang it.

Normally $300, QVC is offering the Arcade1Up Partycade for $210 with $10 for shipping and handling. That’s over $90 off, and the total cost can be spread across financed payments if you prefer. If you love classic arcade games and want to add an arcade cabinet to your home, this is one of the best ways to go.

When you think of Hulu, movies aren't likely the first thing that comes to mind. After all, Hulu is first and foremost, a TV streamer, and the service is constantly releasing new shows and limited series that get plenty of attention from both critics and general audiences. Quietly and in the background, though, it has also developed a fairly impressive lineup of Hulu Original movies and TV shows. The Hulu movies come from a wide variety of places: Some were developed in-house, while others were acquired out of festivals. Not every Hulu movie is great, but many of them are better than you might have expected.
The best of Hulu's original offerings stand up with the movies produced by any other studio. There are a few genuine masterpieces and a few other great movies that you can watch over and over. These are Hulu's 11 best original movies.

A family in bed

It's not an exaggeration to call Conor Heneghan, the father of modern sleep science. After his mid-'90s Ph.D. through Columbia University in electronic and electrical engineering, he spent the next decade developing the technology and algorithms used to detect chronic illness in slumbering patients through radio waves and electrocardiographs (known as EKGs). But over that time, he watched the machinery shrink, and by the mid-aughts, the hardware became small enough that, like a chicken in every pot, the future might find a miniature computer on every wrist, silently tracking biometric data.

Despite his decades on the hospital side, he was wooed into the wellness space in 2015 by Fitbit, where he continues to research sleep for the original fitness wearable company, including for its new Charge 5.
