NES Cartridge Flash Drive With Console USB Port is Both Ridiculous and Perfect

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen NES controllers turned into flash drives and NES cartridges used as cases for external hard drives. But neither of those mods are as awesome – or as ridiculous – as what Instructables user Ed Lewis made: a NES cartridge flash drive with a complementary NES console USB port. Yes, port, as in there’s only one USB connector inside the huge console.

The best part about the hack is that it’s relatively simple. Basically all you have to do is open up the cartridge case, take out the board and make a gap for a flash drive, then glue the drive inside. Then open up the console, cut a hole in the middle of the cartridge connector for the flash drive to slide in, and another hole at the back of the console for the USB cable.

+1 for the NES cartridge icon for the flash drive. Check out Instructables for more details, or maybe you can try making a NES console with multiple USB ports – two ports for controller flash drives, and then one more for a cartridge.
