Evolution of Nintendo Controllers: The Lamp
June 3rd, 2013
I could use a new bedside lamp, but I’m pretty sure my wife would make me sleep in the doghouse for a week if I bought this one.
This Nintendo controller lamp was cobbled together by Etsy artist Woody 6 Switch, and features controllers from the N64, Gamecube, Super Nintendo, NES and Wii. While it’s incomplete without a Wii U touchscreen controller, I’d imagine that would increase the cost of the lamp significantly. Though I do think it would make for a good base for it. And if you’re wondering about the NES Zapper light gun, that’s available in a separate lamp for the other side of the bed.
While these are awesomely geeky, they’re never coming in my house. For some reason, I’m reminded of the whole Leg Lamp story in A Christmas Story. I think I’d wake up one morning to find it in pieces on the floor, and all of the glue in the house would be used up.
