Love it or loathe it, the PlayStation 5 is a lot of people’s aesthetic nightmare. Unless you live in a super modern house or apartment, or perhaps a space ship, the PS5’s bold, curvy white design will probably throw your room off. Though, if YouTuber DIY Perks is any indication, it doesn’t have to be that way.
In a new video, Matthew Perks, who runs the channel DIY Perks, demonstrates how he was able to give the PS5 a pretty transformative makeover — one that moves the needle away from 2001: Space Odyssey and toward an appearance that’s closer to a vintage record player or an IKEA Bluetooth speaker.
But even if this isn’t a project you’d want to (or could) undertake yourself, it’s still a fascinating exercise in thinking about how the PS5 could’ve turned out different, and if you’re still itching to give your console a bit of a makeover, we’ve got you covered.
