How about an NES controller that’s been modded into a USB flash drive? That’s exactly what ProtoDojo concocted, but with a Konami security code — (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A) — feature added in. Video after the break.

Again, there’s no real security here, but in any event it’s miles ahead of what most people use to secure things that are really important to them.

This custom game console — created by reader Neil — is basically an NES shell/case made entirely out of Lego bricks; “each button on the NES is still visible and integrated just like the original.” Video after the break.

Unlike other custom systems, This fully-functional, portable NES can be mounted onto any workbench station. Best of all, you only need “a cheap NoaC (NES on a Chip) and a PSOne LCD” to build your own. Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

If you want to run your own game cartridges, you need to make sure you have the propper wiring for the cartridge slot.

A cool $17,000 on eBay will net you every licensed NES game released, all 773 of them. Plus, the seller will throw in “a couple of licensed game variants such as gray and gold link and Zelda games.” Auction page.

Every game worked properly upon testing but that was a few years ago. There are maybe 5 -10 games that rate under an 8 on my rating scale. An 8 would mean that it has minor scratching to the cart and or label.

This followup to the NES phone, called the nesPod, is basically a standard controller that was gutted and then used as a protective case for the iPod Mini. Continue reading for one more picture.

As you can see the screen and scroll wheel face the back of the controller, so as to preserve the buttons in front.

NES Controller Apple Remote

Mac users who have a spare NES Controller laying around can make good use of it by turning it into a functional Apple Remote. Project page. Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

But this one is at least simple to do and rather neat, involving a minimum of fiddling with solder and wires inside the NES. And you end up with a still fairly small Apple controller with added retro gaming chic.
