Picture of NES Controller Cellphone
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
hit up my tumblr: tamsanh.tumblr.com

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.

hey, i like it, i was thinking about doing this with my phone, but it happens to be a touch screen and im not sure, what do you think?
Actually, you might be able to pull it off by cutting a hole in the back of the controller and just putting the phone inside.
omg dont b dumb. this is an amazing project but theres a reason he bought a cheap Go Phone...

nice concept, would have gotten extra style points for having the headphone jack come out of the old cord location, even more if the controller still worked even as a usb controller.

OK I'm sorry to say but this project is completely pointless it doesn't even retain any noticeable NES controller physical properties I'm sorry but you sir get a 0.5
doesn't even retain any noticeable NES controller physical properties? the cell phone is on the back of the controller genius....
LOL, yea verily.

It would be so funny if a teacher caught you with this during school and you just said oh this is just a controller, that would be awesome :D

After 12h of work, I finally finished my Nokia 1680 Classic Version of this mod. Now I'm tired, my hands are hurting and I need a lot of sleep.

I will upload pictures and a video later.

PS: Thank you for this tutorial… it was very useful to me.

Greetings from Germany,

I think it's an awesome idea...and if my darling fiance wouldn't kill me I'd do this (or something like it) to our phone. Well, maybe not. Ours is a flip phone so I don't think it'd work...oh well...still a nice idea. Maybe I could do the remote to the stereo in the truck?? Hmmm...

anne frank was the jew, molly brown was the blind deaf one
clone jackfr0st8 years ago
Molly Brown was a Titanic survivor. The proper reference is Hellen Keller.
Yeah, pretty sure you wanted to cite Helen Keller. Anne Frank was the Jew who kept a diary. I'm pretty sure she didn't go blind.
Neodudeman (author)  saites20018 years ago
No, I'm positive that it was Anne Frank. I thought Hellen Keller was the one who flew over the Atlantic.
That's Amelia Earhart. I'd like to see Helen Keller try to fly over the Atlantic...
Amelia Earhart's the one that ate her baby.
No, that was Charles Lindburgh.

Charles Lindburgh? The Jew?
History lesson in a nes-controller?
