R-Kaid-R Portable Arcade: Game & Wood

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  July 3, 2014


Last year we drooled over Love Hulten’s R-Kaid-42, a wooden arcade console. Love has a new piece for us to wish for this year. He calls it the R-Kaid-R, a self-contained portable arcade machine. It has an 8″ 800×600 display, a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 8 hours and a beautiful wooden case that makes it look like an artifact from an alternate past.

The R-Kaid-R looks like a simple wooden box when closed, but as soon as you open it up you’ll see how unique and beautiful it is. As a neat twist, its joystick doubles as a lock that keeps its two halves together. It comes with a 16GB SD card that contains its custom OS and interface.

The R-Kaid-R emulates multiple video game consoles, including the Neo Geo, Playstation 1, Atari 2600, Game Boy, NES and SNES. It will also come with a copy of the critically-acclaimed Cave Story. You can edit your game library via R-Kaid-R’s USB port.

Now for the sad part. As with Love’s other creations, the R-Kaid-R is going to cost you. Love is asking for €2,499 (~$3,400 USD) for this modern classic. At least you’ll be able to choose its color. Head to Love’s website to reserve an R-Kaid-R.
