Mac Mini Inside of a NES

I did this project a couple years back and gathered some pretty positive response. So much, in fact, it took down my friend Brent's website (where I was hosting the pictures). I thought that I would submit the photos here, which may benefit others in making one. I've been meaning to do up an instructable on this one. Enjoy the slideshow...

     From the pic of the back it would seem all you really need to do is take out the NES innards and set a whole, unopened mac mini inside.  Of course, the front power button would do nothing, but you would be able to just slide disks into the open cartridge door and into the mac mini's slot-loader drive.  I might have to try this.

    Talk about upcycling.

    I think somebody should do this for others for $$$.

    If somebody could upcycle for money, it could skyrocket the concept of upcycling.

    I even made a homemade advert for this website to prove a point.

    Awesome. I just might try this with the mac mini I will eventually get.

    This is really great. I love the professional look. If you have pictures of the work in progress I think it would make a great full-blown 'ible.
