I’m not smart enough for that.
I'm closer to making one of my own out of a salvage than buying for that much cash, but damn if I didn't get a bit nostalgic seeing the old Nintendo handhelds
I miss my all my old consoles. I would totally honor them by doing something like this. I really miss my SNES and PSP.
I still have my dead Vita and since Sony saw fit to bury the damn thing in an early grave (STILL salty over that) I may as well dress it up for a good sendoff.
That aside the GameBoy color holds a lot of fond memories and while the SP looks cooler I almost HAVE to prefer the former for Pikachu. Then again I did love the card game.
Not my jam. I love old handhelds but I'd rather play them and have actual art on my walls than adorn my walls with them.
Nah I get that, but why not both? Hah, just operating under the assumption that these are largely irreparable units otherwise it'd be a tragedy. Also hey art is fully subjective:P
Subjectively, I think mounting electronics to your walls is dorky AF. I already work with hardware all day, I don't need to see that shit adorning the walls of my home.
I never understood the urge to decorate your surroundings, or wearing clothes, themed by personal interests. My identity and self esteem are firmly separated from any of that stuff.
I suppose it's a comfort to some. I would get sick of seeing it pretty quickly, and it would lessen my desire to engage with that interest.
Hah, well maybe so, but I've always had somewhat questionable aesthetic taste. I just think it's cool seeing components on display (even for things like fountain pens with novel or even typical filling mechanisms), but that's probably largely due to my not being exposed thereto on a regular basis.
I mostly agree with you, @BenjaminBore with the exception of band related items. People see it and ask so I can proselytize and maybe put some $ in their pockets. See avatar for instance.
@Lyander @Senorx12562 Excuse me. I have a tendancy to go ten steps ahead in a conversation before I open my mouth. I was more commenting on people who really 'embrace' their interest, going well beyond one or two set or conversational pieces.
