Swedish Designer Creates Pyua | It’s Like If The Jetsons Had Nintendo

It looks like a Tomy’s ‘My First Video Game Console’ crossed with something you might find in ‘The Jetsons’. But the Pyua combines art and gaming.

Gothenburg, Sweden // From Swedish designer Love Hultèn comes a crazy little contraption that plays original Famicom and/or NES games. Pyua is the NES re-imagined and keeps your games safe in a Jetsons-esque bubble during play.

Love Hultèn is well known for his exclusive retro gaming creations. Fine craftsmanship combined with arcade fundamentals has grown the reputation of the designer who crafts everything with his own hands.

So, looks apart, what makes Pyua so special? Hultèn explains on his website what’s under the dome.

“On the inside you’ll find the heart of the console, the Nt mini pcb – manufactured by praised Seattle based company Analogue. The Nt mini handles both NES and Famicom cartridges, and it does so without any degradation or input lag. Performance is flawless, not just in terms of frame rate and speed, but in color replication and audio as well. And yes, it upscales to 1080p for your HDMI monitor. Nt mini uses FPGA to replicate and truly enhance the 8-bit experience.

Pyua is accompanied by two NES controllers. These are both original AND wireless, a solution created by 8bitdo. The controllers, along with your top 20 favorite game cartridges, are stored in the additional wood casing.”

Occasionally Hultèn’s creations are made available to purchase on a custom order basis. Nothing is kept in stock, everything is made to order.

Unfortunately Pyua isn’t listed to buy, but even if it was you probably couldn’t afford it as his work commonly runs to thousands of Euros.
