Build a Nintendo NES PC author hatsuli dies of cancer Answered

It is with great sadness that I share the news of hatsuli, author of the Build a Nintendo NES PC, dying this August. He suffered from cancer for almost two years. His mother wrote to tell me that he was a great fan of the site and visited it everyday.

hatsuli was a runner-up in the Use It Again! contest for his Nintendo PC, which is currently rated among the top 1% of all Instructables.

2019, and I finally built an nes pc, so Hatsuli still lives on as I used this page for inspiration to finally build one of my own. I didn't realize the author had long passed away after I used the instructable. My heart sank finding out his death was from cancer as my son was also diagnosed from cancer last year. RIP Hatsuli

Hard to believe Hatsuli created such an amazing mod idea so many years ago.. where even today, communities like iCade and Raspberry Pi and countless others are still trying to perfect. This mod is a complete inspiration, and I plan to tackle it myself. What a great mind with such great execution! RIP Hatsuli.

I've first heard of hatsuli's Instructible about a week ago or so, during the

“Awesome Games Done Quick” video games marathon, on Twitch, whose donations went to the Prevent Cancer Foundation (there's their website: preventcancer.org)

I completed my NES PC a while ago after reading hatsuli instrucable. I am very sad to find out that he has died.
But he is surely like the NES we all cherish so much, immortal.

I'm fairly new to this site, and I wanted a nice summer project. I saw the NES pc tutorial and I wept in joy. Now, I find he died? May God bless thee and thy loved ones. You made a lot of gamers happy, man. RIP.

Thank you for your kind words. To be quite honest I cannot take any credit for what he was like. He just turned out to a wonderful young man, all I did was love him. I am so deeply impressed by your comments here. This world was something were were not part of. I mean I knew all his friends but the WWW. world was his alone. Now I get to know some of you and get to have a peak to this side of him. He was very talented in so many ways. Computer was only part of his life. He was a talented guitar player and did wonderfully in his studies. For some reason his life was meant to be this short but he seemed to have left a big foot print!

What I hate most, is that quite often, its of a person, who you just want to smile, sit back, and watch what they come up with next in life. Doesn't quite matter what the passion is doing, its just the true spark of creation: Science, Music, Art, Technology, and a truly unique creator, is a gift to us all. Its sad that he was lost so soon in life, to something as disgusting as cancer. I for one, have lost too many as it is in my life, from essentially the body malfunctioning. I deeply feel for the loss not only in terms of your family, and your son, but the loss of true raw potential.

Not knowing Hatsuli, just from his instructable i can tell he was a very smart guy, you must be very proud. I'm sorry to hear he passed away, only seeing the comment left after i had read his instructable. It even brought a lump to my throat! I'm sorry that such a brilliantly minded person had to be taken so early in life, but he should know that his creations have become legend in my small group of friends! (We're such nerds sometimes) T3h_muffinator couldn't have put it better, May he rest in peace.
