Remember when transparent tech was all the rage? From the N64 to the iMac G3, the 1990s saw a trend for revealing everything's innards through coloured plastic. Today's computers and gaming consoles may be more powerful but more than a few of us still have a soft spot for those devices of old.

Dbrand's banking on that nostalgia with its new PS5 Darkplates. If the sheer, blinding white of the PS5's design isn't for you, it's offering retro panels that can make the PS5 look like a transparent N64 (see the best PS5 deals if you're still seeking the console itself).
