NES-themed Arcade Cabinet: Forward Compatibility
It may not be the best arcade cabinet ever, but Redditor mystery_smelly_feet’s arcade cabinet is no slouch either; especially since he made it with his own two hands. Unless of course he has six hands, in which case this sort of thing is to be expected.

Gameboo: The SNES Portable We Never Had
