The Project Unity Arcade Box Combines Eighteen Consoles In One

It took him more than three years and cost over $1,000, but modder Bacteria managed to forge eighteen different consoles into a single box.  It's an impressive feat; it contains circuitry from fifteen different systems and works with a single master controller, power supply, and video cable. It's also particularly massive, weighing in at a whopping forty-fourt pounds and standing at what looks to be a few feet in height. All of the circuitry Bacteria packed into the box is either stripped from the original consoles or custom-built.

Admittedly, the console looks a touch ugly, but it most certainly works. 

Project Unity can run games for the Atari 2600 and 7800, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo 64, NeoGeo MVS, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo GameCube + GBA connecter, NEC TurboGrafx X, Colecovision, Intellivision, Sony Playstation 1/2, and Amstrad GX1000. In the case of systems which require memory cards for saved-games, the cards have been hardwired to the console boards. 

With the project complete, Bacteria posted a rather lengthy video (see below) detailing and describing the process involved in Unity's creation.It speaks to his skill that Bacteria was able to put something like this together. Even better, he's willing to sell it - but only if someone makes him a high enough offer (somewhere around five figures or so). 

Check the video below for more details.
