The success of the Nintendo Classic and the surprising demand for the relaunched Nokia 3310 demonstrates that there is a market out there for nostalgic and retro tech products.

We've seen the resurgence of vinyl and even the lowly cassette tape and it looks like this retro counter-culture comeback trend is not coming to a halt anytime soon. And it's not just Nintendo and Nokia doing a Lazarus job on some of the most iconic products of the past.

Here are five of these retro-inspired products that are likewise on the comeback trail.

Atari 2600

The Atari 2600 ushered in the first home console gaming craze back in the 1970s. Who can forget gaming classics like Asteroids, Missile Command, Q*Bert, Yars' Revenge and Pitfall?

Unfortunately, the gaming market collapsed in 1983, taking this beloved console with it.

But Atari 2600 fans, gather your joysticks, you can get a modern reimagining of the console with the Atari Flashback. Actually, this plug and play mini version of the 2600 has been around for a while, way before the Nintendo Classic.

It comes with two wireless joysticks, 101 built-in games and composite TV connectors. This retro console looks great too!

You can purchase the Atari Flashback at Amazon right now for about $50.
