Working NES Controller/Coffee Table Answered

This guy made a functioning NES controller that is a few feet wide and also serves as a coffee table when the glass top is put on. Insanely impressive.

Great news! I invited the creator to post an Instructable, and he says he will! In the mean time, there are more details on his blog.

Very cool... shame it's not 'really playable' tho, regarding the ability to use it properly. :(

The art is in the details; in this case the use of quotes, to show it as a relaxed and informal quote. I even clarified that it was in reference to being able to use it properly, obviously as the original gamepad was intended. Yes it can be used, but not very well. You understood that sentence at least, didn't you? MadMechanicMike, use your time wisely.

Look at all those photos as well - he could write up a proper Instructable!

In fact, I think I'll ask him to.

Pops over to YouTube

Done. I wonder if we'll get a response? I hope so.
