Transparent refurbished Super Nintendo consoles

Rose-Colored gaming's producing a limited run of transparent Super Nintendo consoles, refurbished from cosmetically-damaged originals. The guts are painted and polished to be pretty behind the new acrylic enclosures. [via]

These SNES consoles have been treated to a 100% brand new, hand-built exterior, all while retaining complete original function. Each is assembled by hand with the care and attention to detail that you have come to expect from RCG. The housing consists of laser cut and etched acrylic components which have been drilled, bent, bonded, threaded, & assembled using all new anodized aluminum hardware. Many internal components have been slathered in various finishes then etched in order to accentuate items which were never meant to be seen. All hand-built, these units will only be available in VERY limited quantities upon release, with each being treated to a unique serial number.

    That would be most of them. The SNES and its plastics do not age well at all.

    This is lovely, though. I love electronics with clear cases even when there's nothing mechanical inside. The cartridge alone is a work of art. The SNES is particularly lovely and I like how they completely redesigned the case for this.

    Wonderful stuff.

  3. You can't fool me, those are Apple prototypes!

  4. It's cool, but they're just so... rectangular.
