W O A H ! What a sharp looking console from John Schaeffer (https://buff.ly/2V1Z1Ug) that he shared with us... it even glows in the dark. Something about the frosty appearance of the shell and the crystalline purple buttons really gets our attention, especially with the white lens. Well done, John.
