This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Meet Pixel Vision, a handmade pocket sized portable game system made from solid walnut. This foldable console, inspired by the Game Boy Advance SP, measures only 95x95x45mm and is built around a system emulating classic consoles like the NES, Atari 2600, Game Boy and many more. Pixel Vision let you enjoy the classics in first class, and can store over 10.000 games. Add your own favorites through USB and create a personal game library. The unit provides eight hours of gaming per charge and the custom made soft case keeps the unit well protected from external damage when on the run.
Pixel Vision is an handcrafted toy for the dedicated gamer. It’s a link between the present and the past and a tribute to gaming. Each unit is processed with utmost care and comes in a very limited edition of only 500 units. The console is made from solid American walnut and cast acrylic. The acrylic has a smooth and creamy satin finish and gives the panels a very scratch resistant surface. The matte finish also keeps fingerprints away, unlike the glossy piano black surfaces being found on most modern devices. The walnut casing has a beautiful oil finish, and Pixel Vision will breathe through time! Note that Pixelvision is a handmade object, not made through industrial manufacturing. The final pricing covers the hours going into the wood work.
As of December 10th, this project has raised around $75,000 of their $46,112 goal. This project only has 3 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $461, you will get one Pixel Vision. For a pledge of $807, you will get one Pixel Vision pearl edition.
