GameCube Desktop Organizers Would Only Be Better If They Still Played Super Smash Brothers Melee


If you’re like me, your old Nintendo GameCube is either gathering dust in a closet somewhere, or you’ve eBayed it by now. But there is one other thing you could do with your GameCube – turn it into a desktop organizer.


Actually, turning your GameCube into a desktop caddy is a task best left to the pros, like Etsy seller GreenCüb, whose tagline is simply “Office Supplies Made from Recycled Video Game Systems”. At this point the only said office supply is their GameCube caddy, which offers ample storage for your paperclips, pushpins, pens and other desktop doo-dads.


Each organizer is made from an actual (broken) GameCube, and features a handy metal tray in place of the disc drive, a pull-out drawer where the controllers once plugged in, a magnetic paperclip caddy on the vent holes, and pen/pencil holes in place of the Power and Reset buttons. There’s even a little shelf on back for storing your iPhone or other compact gadget too.


Sure, I suppose you could try and do this yourself, but I’d suggest that you head on over to GreenCüb’s Etsy shop and just buy one ready-made. Prices range from $39 to $49 (USD), depending on the particular GameCube model you want.

    Thank you so much for the feature. Also, thank you for noticing that there was not a photo of the rear shelf, this has been corrected.

  2. Hunter S says:

    Very cool

  3. GreenCüb says:

    One other update. The Price of the Platinum systems have been dropped to $49 (same as the Black systems).

  4. Chris says:

    I noticed your Etsy page was down. Do you still make these? I would love to buy a couple!
