If one is on the look out for a functioning and truly bizarre device, one needs to look no further than Love Hultén— a designer, based in Gothenburg, Sweden. His one-of-a-kind products are handmade and fuse both the aesthetic and functional properties of traditional and futuristic styles. From gaming and audio apparatuses to communication and musical gadgets, ​Love Hultén's line-up of bizarre devices both delight and puzzle people.

The Echo Observatory V2, for example, is a combination of a musical instrument and a screen saver— "a fractal-creating device [allowing] users to visually explore [...] an array of mathematically generated patterns." The Pet De Lux, on the other hand, is a bizarre device, whose technical framework is informed by a 1977 desktop computer. While its vintage exterior is preserved, the computer is updated with a modern CPU for better graphic representation.

Other bizarre devices include an unconventional tripod gaming system, portable all-in-one gaming console and a mini arcade cabinet.
