Space Invaders bracelet pattern Answered

I figured since I made this pattern for a Space Invaders bracelet a while back I might as well share it. Try it, it's fun :D

Here is how to make a beaded bracelet like this.

Here's a thought - the image-meme space invader is so pervasive, yet how many of you have actually played the original game, with coloured cellophane over the screen to make the invaders change colour as they advance down the screen?

Thanks for reminding me I'm getting old Kiteman. Also the sound those machines produced can not be fully replicated IMHO. It wasn't just a game, it was a experience.

You can still play it if you have Open Office -- a German version is embedded as an easter egg in the spreadsheet program. No sound effects, though.

LOL oh I know the feeling! I remember the time my oldest daughter seen a 8 track and I tried to explain it to her. She looked as if I grew horns and was tap dancing in a opera! It's easy to forget we were on the cusp of todays fast pace society and things are too soon forgotten.

I have played alot, never with coloured cellophane though, i have a joystick you plug into the tv and it has space invaders and a few other classics. I also have it on my laptop, i play it when the internet dies or in lessons at school :P

That's not Space Invaders, that's retro Space Invaders!

The original arcade units had monochrome screens, that you looked at via a mirror, with cellophane over them to make the advancing aliens more menacing.

The original was six feet tall and weighed twice as much as any normal human.
