The ‘R-Kaid Revelation’ is a home built gaming system with a transparent screen than shows the inside of the machine when it’s switched off.
The machine is also a pretty powerful PC for its size, with an Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a GTX 670 graphics card. It has a custom interface to access over 12,000 pre-installed games.

Patrice says the system has zero input lag and the controllers weight is mostly unchanged from the originals, despite the modifications.
