Samba de Amigo maracas. Dance Dance Revolution mats. And — dare I even invoke its name? — the Virtual Boy. We know you've got them, hiding in a box in the attic or gathering dust in a corner. It's time to bring them out and experience them again, as part of our latest Bitmob Wants You callout.

Both challenges end on Jan. 31, 2012. So you've got some time to cogitate. But don't take too long. (Personally, I wouldn't want to keep that monkey waiting. He frightens me.)
