The internet is full of plans for building your own old-school arcade cabinet that can play all the classic games you grew up with. But with just a single image, Love Hultén makes a strong case for buying one of his beautiful Pixelkabinett 42 cabinets instead of trying to build one yourself.
The bad news is that Hultén's latest creation is expensive — like crazy expensive — at just shy of $US4200. But that buys you a level of craftsmanship and attention to detail that few are capable of in their basement workshops. Standing on four rocket nozzle-inspired feet, the stylishly green Pixelkabinett 42 is adorned with a glowing planetarium on the front, and has a lovely ash and American walnut finish.
The display can be flipped-down for easy storage, and to protect the arcade's joysticks and buttons when not in use. And because only 50 of them are being hand-made, there is room to customise yours if you must have one for your game room. By default it comes installed with a JAMMA PCB board featuring a handful of classic video games baked in, but you can also opt for a full-on PC inside if you'd rather use MAME or another emulator of your choice.
