The Atari 2600 Game Library

The Game Library, an obscure Atari 2600 accessory from 1980, is the fanciest (probably most useless too) game storage solution a retro gamer can get. You can store up to eight Atari cartridges and their instructions in it and then push a lever to have the cartridge of your choice pop out for you. Then again, it's quite a rare thingy.

Anyone interested should really have a look at a certain Game Library ebay auction. Seller ships to Europe and US, but probably could also manage worldwide.
