The tsunami that happened earlier this year is still affecting many Japanese citizens and to help, BeSpoke Arcade and street artist SHOK-1 designed the Limited Edition Art-Cade Machine to benefit those in Japan.

The Limited Edition Art-Cade Machine is a one-of-a-kind arcade system that features over 350 pre-installed games, two controllers with five buttons on either side and a huge 2-inch over HD TFT display. It's even more impressive on the technical side as its boasts "four USB 2.0 ports, a DVD writer, WiFi connectivity, a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse, and Windows 7 home edition," according to Ubergizmo. The exterior features original artwork from SHOK-1 that's protected by a lacquer layer.

All proceeds from the auction will go directly to the British Red Cross Tsunami Relief Fund.
