Here at Engadget HQ, we're no strangers to Love Hultén's design prowess. Having caught our eye a few years back with the R-Kaid-6 wooden console, the Swedish gadget maker is at it again -- only this time a mobile arcade option is the project. With the R-Kaid-R, Hultén keeps with the natural materials and adds brass detail work, crafting an all-in-one option that takes on a form factor similar to that of a cigar box. The unit packs an 8-inch LCD display beside a built-in speaker, with the joystick and buttons for wrangling loaded titles down below. In order to get those games on board, R-Kaid-R has USB connectivity and an SD card slot for added storage. So exactly what can you play on this dapper device? System support includes Neo Geo, Atari 2800, Nintendo, Sega Genesis, PlayStation 1 and several others with a hand from a pre-installed OS for around eight hours of play. Those ready to commit €2,499 ($3,419) will benefit from the self-contained system's solid wood housing for protection, with the option of tacking on a leather shoulder bag for transit. Unfortunately, each of the five color options won't be available until September, but while you consider draining your savings account, have a closer look in the gallery down below.
