The scientists at Yellow Bulldog have “summarily turned the PS1 into a wallet”. We have no idea what device they used, presumably the Combi Leather-Minitariser 3000, or perhaps the mighty Wall-enator 3.1. I suppose we’ll never truly know, although it saddens me to think of all those indigenous Playstation Ones being warped into simple dumb wallets. Eldritch origins aside, these wallets are super cool and also very detailed, with plenty of space for your cards, coin and maybe spare gummy bears. Try one out at Yellow Bulldog for £12.99.
