For many of us, our first memories of video games are those of sitting cross-legged in front of an old-model vacuum tube television, staring up at a pixellated plumber on the bulbous screen. Now, thanks to Love Hulten and their Yesterday Vision retro console, you can capture that same nostalgia with some modern bonuses.
Boasting a beautiful mahogany enclosure with an HDMI 19″ 4:3 monitor (complete with a barrel-distortion designed to mimic the curvature of an old CRT monitor), a full-range sound system, and a built-in Raspberry Pi mini computer, this is a throwback gaming machine loaded with up-to-date tech. And while it comes ready to emulate classic consoles — like the NES, Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, NeoGeo, and more — it also features an HDMI input at the back with support for laptops, Chromecast, and even modern consoles. Best of all, the Yesterday Vision uses Bluetooth technology to connect up to four wireless controllers. Furthermore, if 19 inches isn’t quite big enough, it can also be custom ordered as large as 55 inches. Pricing starts at $2,799.
