Pixel Vision is a handmade portable games console

The most premium handheld ever?

If you're hankering for a retro games fix and want a portable console made from the finest materials, you're going to love Pixel Vision.

It's a portable games console that looks a bit like a Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP. But it wouldn't look out of place in a gentlemen's club – it's made from solid walnut, and is handmade, giving it a premium finish. Inside, the acrylic is easy to clean, and has a matte finish, so won't attract fingerprints.

But it's not just a looker. Inside is a Raspberry Pi A+ board, capable of emulating consoles like the NES, Atari 2600, Game Boy and more, and can hold more than 10,000 games. Should take you a while to get through all of those.

You load on games via USB, and it also uses USB to charge. Fully juiced, it will last eight hours before needing a recharge.

It also comes with its own custom-made soft case to protect it while travelling.

Each design is limited to 500 units. So it's definitely not a mass-produced object. You can even adjust the friction hinge to your desired level of stiffness.

Not special enough for you? Check out the Pearl units, with their d-pad and buttons made from solid brass, shimmering matte black panels and exclusive inlay.

It's passed its funding goal and will ship in February. Prices start at £311.
