9. Lexan Case Portable NESFastMHZ created this strange portable NES system. Parts used in its construction include: 1 x PSOne TFT screen, 1 x NES console, 1 x 3rd-party controller, 8 x lithium-ion cells, 1 x 72-pin game connector, and a homemade clear Lexan case.
It's actually quite comfortable to play as I sanded down the corners on the bottom half of the unit. It's a bit heavy though, but I have no trouble playing it while laying down or sitting at a table.[Source]
8. Mac Mini NES
Well, someone had to do it! The Mac Mini NES was an idea born out necessity, and a love of the hardware modification arts. Necessity because I owned an internal DVD writer for my previous PC and, with the switch to an Apple PC, I was left to use an IDE to USB adapter (enclosures are expensive). This was to much of a ghetto looking setup for my taste. Most of all, the two tone 8-bit console has appealing style and is a famous icon of console gaming (not to mention, ideal dimensions for a desktop system.)[Source]

5. NES Cartridge Hard Drive Mod
The first thing that you need to do, is get a NES cartridge. If you dont have one, used video game stores usually still have a few. I had two copies of Zelda, so I chose to use that one. Next, you need a laptop drive of some sort. I started this with an OLD ~1000 RPM laptop drive. I swear I could piss bits faster than this thing could read/write. BUT it worked. And then you need to get a hold of a USB/drive converter appropriate to the drive you are using. I got mine from geeks.com. It came with this steel black enclosure that my old drive didnt even fit in, which is why I did this[Source]
4. NES Controller TV RemoteWhat better way to hide the TV remote then by stuffing it inside an old NES controller. Plus, you only have to spend around $13.00 buying the parts needed for this project: an old controller, remote, two AA batteries, and a few hours of hacking.
All the parts used in this project were very cheap ( about $13.00 total ) and the entire construction took place in one weekend. Not too bad for the coolest TV remote I’ve ever had[Source]
3. NES DVD PlayerVintageComputing managed to fit a CyberHome CH-DVD 300 DVD player into an old NES case, complete with retractable DVD tray, infrared receiver, functional remote control, and stereo/S-Video/RCA jacks.
All that being said, here are some nice features of my particular NES DVD Player: NES Power Button turns DVD Power on/off. NES Reset Button ejects DVD tray. Fully functional remote control…control. Infrared receiver (for remote control) inconspicuously placed in first-player controller port area. Upon ejecting or retracting the DVD tray, the NES cartridge slot door opens/closes automatically[Source]
2. NES Powerglove MouseAustin Weber decided to make his own PowerGlove mouse hack -- based on ZeroSign's original design . This new version features in game controls that are mapped to the thumb (forward motion), pointer finger (trigger), and arm (camera view).
In addition to cleaning up all the wires and using smaller circuitry components he also has a killer demo of the glove with Unreal Tournament.[Source 1 - 2]
