My name is Love Hultén, and I’m a craftsman, designer and game enthusiast from Sweden. My handmade consoles are all personal tributes to a time when limitations created masterpieces using only a few pixels, but they are also nostalgic visions in a world of throwaway excess and economic efficiency gone awry.
Meet Pixel Vision, a handmade pocket sized portable game system made from solid walnut. This foldable console, inspired by the Game Boy Advance SP, measures only 95x95x45mm and is built around a system emulating classic consoles like the NES, Atari 2600, Game Boy and many more. Pixel Vision lets you enjoy the classic in first class, and can store over 10.000 games. Add your own favorites through USB and create a personal game library. The unit provides eight hours of gaming per charge and the custom made soft case keeps the unit well protected from external damage when on the run.
Apart from the 500 consoles, 20 additional “Pearl” units will be made. The “Pearl” units have D-Pad & buttons made from solid brass, shimmering matte black panels and an exclusive inlay on top, made from genuine Mother of pearl shell veneer. These extremely limited editions are signed and numbered, and comes with a collectors certificate.
