do you agree Technology at its peak in the days of candy-colored devices with transparent colors like “Atomic Purple” and “Bondium Blue”? If so, Dbrand will so many enjoy weaponizing your nostalgia against your bank account.
Today it introduced the $100 Classic Dark Plate for your PS5, giving your Sony console an effect similar to the transparent N64s Nintendo released at the turn of the millennium. century.
They are available in transparent orange, light blue, black and purple, with the first three being “counterweights to their N64 counterparts”, said Dbrand CEO Adam Ijaz – because the company purchased these that original panel, Pantone paired them and then spent two, he said. The final panels are made of translucent ABS and still have the same easter egg inside: the binary is meant to be a snippet of Sony’s outage.
What about the PS5’s glossy black center bar, you ask? You will apply a flat X-ray image in skin form: “We took X-rays of the PS5’s side faces in about a dozen subsections, and then meticulously pieced the parts together to ensure proper representation. precisely the internals of the PS5 from every angle,” said Ijaz. You also get vinyl strips to turn the PS5’s white running lights into purple, orange, or ice blue to match.
It’s no secret that I love a good transparent device, so I asked Dbrand to lend me a full set of all four colors — and swapping out is pretty easy, even for someone who hates colors. skin like me. In case you didn’t know, turning on the PS5’s white console is such an easy thing that you can do it with Sony’s help. The skin can be easily aligned by inserting it into the PS5’s eject and power buttons, then making sure the front USB port holes align.
Is the final effect worth $100? It is a small rich for me, especially since I prefer the original Sony popped collar design over the rounded corners that helped Dbrand avoid a lawsuit. You basically can’t see much of the PS5’s interior through Dbrand’s panels because Sony has large metal shields underneath and the skin is too translucent to convince me I’m looking at it. because my dashboard.
While I was nitpicking, it was a bit odd that the PS5 lit up blue or orange instead of white because that light didn’t shine through the color-changing tones appropriately.
But Dbrand’s Burnt Orange is absolutely hot, the blue is definitely cool, and the purple looks bright when you’re lit, if a bit dark to appreciate when it’s in my entertainment center. If there’s a half-price sale, I’ll probably buy a set.
By the way, I really don’t know what to think about Dbrand’s marketing in this regard. I asked Ijaz: Why do you have to knock me down with the shattered reality of middle-aged life?
“The harsh reality of middle-aged life is exactly what we were expecting,” he replied.
