Retro games are resurfacing all types d & # 39; emulators, but the Swedish artist and craftsman Love Hultén has created one that makes an extra effort if you really want to experience a nostalgic experience. His new design, called Yesterday Vision, is a mid-century hand-crafted monitor that can play classic system games.
The vision of yesterday contains a 19 inch 4: 3 monitor designed to have the curvature distortion of an old CRT monitor. It also has broadband speakers and a built-in Raspberry Pi computer that emulates game systems such as SNES, NES, Genesis, NeoGeo, MAME, Atari 2600, N64 and PSX. You can also play modern games or connect your laptop to Yesterday Vision via an HDMI input on the back. It can also support the connection of four different controllers via Bluetooth. Use your own, or you can ask Hultén to create a pair of hardwood wireless arcade controllers during your purchase.
Hultén designed full of fun emulators, like the most portable R-Kaid-R which tours in 2016 and featured an arcade joystick and buttons, and the Pyua, a "Sanctuary" Nintendo with a bubble dome. It's a strange juxtaposition to see modern technology that allows retro games to be played in a shell prior to the games themselves. For Hultén, that's the goal. By creating these strange pairs, I hoped that the pieces rest on our assumptions as to how we design an object with its function.
If you want this artistic mashup of past and present, the Yesterday Vision is available for purchase for $ 2,799 (excluding VAT and shipping costs).
