Swedish designer and craftsman Love Hulten has shaped wood and metals into pure class with his "all-in-one" gaming system, R-Kaid Revelation. The gorgeous machine was crafted from walnut and copper, and features built-in peripherals and a backlit LCD screen that showcases the computer's components while asleep. Though the build was first revealed to the world in early December, it was only recently highlighted by culture site Boing Boing.

The machine boasts a custom interface (with the ability to boot into Windows), over 10,000 pre-installed games, an Intel i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a previous-generation GTX 600 Series GPU. The build components won't pit it against more modern horsepower, but it's housed inside a case that would look right at home in my parent's living room.
