Taking another look at console product design, Colombian designer Alejandro Duque modernized a classic gaming system in 'Super Nintendo Revolution.' Taking inspiration from the design of the ‘Super Nintendo Entertainment System,' Duque meshed modern technology with retro sensibilities. In addition to upgrading the technology, Duque also added modern design concepts to the classic console.

Duque's designs stay true to the console's predecessor but include some interesting changes. Instead of the unreliable game cartridges of the past, Duque opted for flash drives. In addition, the controllers were given a sleek black redesign. The game controllers also had wireless technology installed and the wires removed.

The Super Nintendo Revolution concept designs take a very insightful look into how far we've come as a species. By adapting past technology to the present, you can compare and contrast the advances that were made in design and hardware.
