The console was invented by Swedish designer Love Hultén, who handcrafts each console in his workshop located in Gothenburg, Sweden. Hultén's durable, one-of-a-kind consoles challenge us to rethink the disposable, mass-market nature of video-gaming.

The casing of this pocket-sized, foldable gaming console is made of American walnut, and the controls are similarly crafted of solid wood. So, when folded up, it won't look out of place on your desk.

Each console is custom-made to order. Demos feature "Metroid" and "Mega Man," but the options are likely as broad as the NES catalog.
