First real wood cover launched for Sony PlayStation 4

German tech refinement company Balolo has launched what it says is the world’s first genuine wood cover to fit your next generation Sony PlayStation 4 games console. No longer will you be limited to the glossy black standard look of this machine. Balolo customer can choose from their favourite real wood finish which includes; bamboo, cherry, walnut and zebra wood – or a combination of these to your liking – see the picture below.

Do you think it looks much better, a more fashionable and eye pleasing form of tech furniture? I remember the old Atari VCS games console has a walnut veneer effect – but that was the 70s or 80s, but it wasn’t real wood.

The wooden covers are usually supplied to buyers to affix to the console themselves. Once you receive the Balolo wood cover you peel off a plastic backing and then affix the veneer to the PlayStation 4 carefully. Actually Balolo says that “In case you have shaky hands and want a perfectly refined PlayStation 4, you can also buy a PlayStation 4 with the Balolo cover already applied.”

  • customizable

  • easy application
  • 100% Made in Germany
