Smallest SNES

Raspberry Pi can be used to build many things, including the world's smallest SNES, or at least a miniature device that looks like one. Gaming enthusiast Hugo doris hand-crafted the clay shell for his SNES Micro, which consists of a Raspberry Pi Zero board and a USB hub. The finished produce runs an SNES emulator that could play just about any NES game as well. Unfortunately, you won't be able to plug in any of the original controllers, which is understandable due to the original slots being larger than the micro console itself, but I'm sure you'll find plenty of worthy alternatives.

Nintendo Switch VR

Mario Kart and Zelda are fun games both on portable as well as home consoles, but imagine playing the titles in virtual reality? Thanks to the Nintendo Switch, that may soon become a possibility. Simply put, the Switch's display would slide right onto this headset and the Joy-Con controllers would be used like normal. What would something like this be priced at? Well, considering that the HTC Vive costs $800, anything priced at half that or even less should be a hot seller. Continue reading for more pictures.

Portal HoloLens

Sure, the Microsoft HoloLens Developer Kit may cost $3,000, but if this Portal demo is an indication of its potential, it will be well worth the money when it's released.

Simply place the two portals anywhere in the game environment, and they're instantly connected, regardless of their position.

Tracer Pulse Gun

Overwatch fans rejoice! Inventor Patrick Priebe of Laser Gadgets has created a fully-functional Tracer Pulse Gun, and visually, it looks to match its video game counterpart, while the side "has spinners". Users can switch in / out of pulse firing, and you can set lots of things on fire when you're bored. Unlike the game, these do not have a large cone of fire nor a heavy damage dropoff, which make them ineffective beyond short range engagements.
