Giant Robot’s Famicom-Inspired Scion xB

By Andrew Liszewski

I can’t say I’d ever give the Scion xB a second glance if one passed me on the street, but now that Erik Nakamura of Giant Robot has had his way with one, it’s definitely caught my attention. Inspired by the Nintendo Famicom and other classic gaming consoles of the 80’s, this xB features controller inspired door buttons complete with retro sound effects and actual controllers built into the seat belts that work with projectors hidden in the headlights and taillights for a little gaming-on-the-go. Instead of a key it even uses a removable game cartridge, and the red ignition button is taken directly from an arcade machine.
