How awesome is it that we live in a world with huge functional NES controllers? And those are just the ones we know about! Then there’s this one made by Baron Julius von Brunk, which is a bit geekier because it’s almost entirely made from LEGO.

The Baron connected the bricky buttons and the d-pad to small push buttons, which are in turn connected the circuit board of a NES controller. He built spring-loaded modules using Technic pieces to prevent the big LEGO buttons from getting stuck on the small push buttons.

The Baron likes to play his NES games on the PC, so also he connected his LEGO controller to a USB converter.

Head to Baron Julius’ blog for more details on his epic hack.
