The final frontier of NES Controller Mods:
The NES Controller Cellphone.UPDATE 6/9/11:
Hey everyone. Wow, I'm still surprised at home much attention this project gets.
Unfortunately, I don't get to check instructables like, at all. SO if you need to contact me, please

I've managed to squeeze a Motorola C168 into the tiny compartment that is the NES Controller.
Yes. I know. Amazing.
I got the idea while at the local Play N Trade. I saw the controller on the rack, and immediately said: "That would make a great cell phone!"
And so I did it!
I started the taking apart of the phone yesterday at around 3PM. I then woke up at 2AM, and worked from 3AM to 11AM. If you pay attention to the lighting of the pictures, you can actually see the transition of night to day. The finished phone was taken this morning, and the taken apart phone was taken yesterday afternoon. All the dremeling was done in the basement in the early morning, until the late morning.
I'd like to thank all my friends who supported the idea, and the Play N Trade who had the controller to mod!
P.S. In all fairness, and to give props where they are do, it was actually Sam Garfield
who first made the NES Controller Cellphone. However, it was still my own personal idea to begin with. I did not use Sam Garfield's DIY to make this phone. This phone is a product of my own imagination.
