- The OriginX is a wall-mounted arcade cabinet with a design based off the original ‘Pong’ machine.
- It can store up to 10,000 arcade games of your choice.
- The catch: only 50 are being made, and each costs $US3,416.
Those with an extra $US3,416 laying around and a yearning to experience the nostalgic feeling of playing on an original Pong table are in luck – the OriginX, made by Swedish designer Love Hultén, is being hand-made for a limited edition of 50 units.
The OriginX is wall-mounted, and based off the original Pong cabinet, complete with a walnut housing, a yellow facade (additional colours are available upon request), and aluminium housing. The interior computer serves as an emulator that allows users to play some classic arcade games with up to two players – but by installing additional hardware or using a USB port, virtually any arcade games can be played on the machine. The cabinet can store up to 10,000 games, Hultén says.
The 19-inch, 4:3 LCD screen has a “barrel distortion” filter that mimics the effect of playing on an old, classic CRT arcade screen.
The unit can be shipped worldwide, and all 50 OriginX machines are personally made in Sweden by Hultén.
And if you’re wondering what the significance is behind the $US3,416 price tag, it’s simply the conversion of the price in Euros.
