“Battlecade” is a conceptual arcade console for two players, influenced by classic board games like ‘Battleship’ and ‘Duke Nukem’. Instead of the classic side-by-side setup, Love Hulten decided players sit facing each other. With a mid section including two 12 inch LCD monitors, neither can see the other’s game strategy. It has built in storage for quick access to accessories like power supply and detachable joysticks. When not in use, the console folds into three sections to a convenient carrier.
