Giant working NES controller/coffee table


Kyle Downes of the aptly named "Ultra Awesome" blog built this genius coffee table that's an enormous, working NES controller! It opens to reveal storage space for tons of game-carts . Link (via Wonderland)

  1. That’s fantastic, looks like it would be fun to have 2 or 3 people playing on the same controller.

  2. With the size of this thing I’m surprised they didn’t mod it to have the actual NES inside the table. Pretty sweet regardless though.

  3. I wonder if it gets all gummy and yucky like the old NES contrllers.

    What? Was that only mine? Call me pigpen.

  4. This is really cool, but I must admit that the wiring and soldering made me want to cry. Why put so much work on the exterior appearance but do such a half-assed job on the electronics?

  5. My first thought: ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG.

    My second thought: My wife will never let me put one in our living room.

    My third thought: Damn.

  6. @BZISHI: It’s actually not that common to find an attractive art object with expertly done electronics, unless two people worked on the project. Overlap between electronics craftsmanship and artistic ability seems to be lacking. That’s why Ben Heck’s projects are so amazing.

  7. My first thought: ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG.

    My second thought: My wife will never let me put one in our living room.

    My third thought: Damn.

  8. just don’t try and use it as a coffee table though… you wouldn’t want to knock a cup over on it and blow the works…

  9. #11: If you click through to his blog, there is a glass cover for it, to be removed when playing games.

  10. Ohhhh…..sick. My consumer gland is overloading my brain with purchasin.

    I must have it.
