love hultén was influenced by 8-bit handheld video game devices, primarily the game boy advance SP, as well as the NES and atari 2600, when creating ‘pixel vision’. measuring 95x95x45 mm, the solid american walnut console is built around a system that emulates these classic portable gaming designs, with a cast acrylic interface that has a smooth satin finish. pixel vision pocket sized portable wood gaming system designboom

the unit provides three portable hours of gaming per charge, and can also be played while plugged in. in case you find yourself in a situation in which you need more battery time, any standard external USB power bank will give ‘pixel vision’ some extra hours while you’re on the run. each console comes with a soft case that protects it from external damage; and the very unique friction hinge that is custom made from american walnut, can be adjusted with a small hex key. the console also has the capacity to store over 10,000 games which can be added through a USB, allowing you to create your own personalized game library.
