The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E289

When we weren’t do­ing ev­ery­thing else, we were think­ing about stuff like this

CON­SOLE

Pixel Vi­sion www.bit.ly/or­der­pix­elvi­sion

Love Hultén is a crafts­man and de­signer who pro­duces ar­ti­san videogame con­soles and ar­cade ma­chines. His lat­est cre­ation is an at­tempt to make one of his hand­crafted ma­chines a lit­tle more

af­ford­able, and is called Pixel Vi­sion. The chunky solid-wal­nut clamshell de­sign was in­spired by Nin­tendo’s Game Boy Ad­vance

SP, while Rasp­berry Pi-based guts can emu­late clas­sics from a va­ri­ety of con­soles in­clud­ing NES, Atari 2600 and Game Boy. Only 500 will be made, and many of those have al­ready been snapped up dur­ing the de­vice’s suc­cess­ful Kick­starter cam­paign, but a few dozen re­main avail­able and can be or­dered from Hultén’s web­site

for 429 (£310) each. Hey, we did say a lit­tle more af­ford­able.
