The Twin Famicom is an interesting game console. Produced by Sharp, it was Nintendo's Famicom console and Disk System melded into a single console. While it looked nice enough, there is a way to make it look better: Lots and lots of gloss.

Via Tiny Cartridge, this is the work of Slovenian artist Zoki64, who is famous for painting video game hardware and making it look truly slick. Previously, Kotaku featured Zoki64's work. It was lovely then, and it's lovely now.

Oh for fuck's sake, lol... I was like "What the hell is this glossy red Twinfami?!" (For those who don't know, the real thing is more matte, owing to a textured surface.) then I re-read and saw that it was a 'painting', lol... ('shooped photo, actually, but w/e) I've always wanted the red Twinfami. It looks so cool. I've got a gashapon of the black/red one on my desk. :3
