With systems like the PlayStation 4 ditching backwards compatibility, getting your old-school gaming fix is turning into a lost art. Hardcore gamers could always keep their consoles hooked up 24/7 in a tangle of wires and cables, but one truly creative gamer has redefined BC by combining a whopping 15 systems into one.
Dubbed “Project Unity” by designer Bacteria, this technological marvel is the “most comprehensive multi-system retro video gaming console system made.” This 20kg box combines 15 consoles that span all generations of gaming, with support for the NES, SNES, Sega Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, and even ColecoVision. However, this creation did not come easy (or cheap): Project Unity is the culmination of 3,500 man-hours, three years’ time, and £700 in parts. Despite its versatility, the creation only uses one power supply and its own custom controller.
