BOB180 is a handcrafted conceptional video game system based around barrel distortion. A bubble head resting on top of a tree-legged stand made from ash. The white acrylic dome is backlit by a built-in projector – creating fantastic new renderings of classic arcade games. The spherical display eliminates over defined boundaries and thereby amplifies the sense of space and freedom. The associated cubic trackball controller is wireless and uses a big white quartz crystal for navigation. Not all games support trackball, but BOB180 supports bluetooth connectivity – which means that any regular bluetooth gamepad will connect through plug-n-play. BOB180 is hight adjustable and can be accustomed accordingly.
