UV Holographic Overlays for Vectrex Consoles

Browsing through a recent issue of my favourite in-print retro magazine, the aptly-titled “Retro Gamer Magazine“, I stumbled across an article about Laurence Bennion’s “Blacklighter” project.  These are a series of prints on transparent film that react to UV “black lights”, and when combined with the vector video screen of a classic Vectrex console, look […]
