This SNES Is Now a Nintendo Switch Dock
The Nintendo Switch and its docking station are pretty good looking the way they come from the factory. But that hasn’t stopped people from wanting to customize their game systems to their own liking. If you’re into the look of classic Nintendo game systems, then you might want to build a Switch dock like this one, which a modder built into the case of an old Super Nintendo console. Nintendo fan and casemodder Imokruok previously turned an 8-bit NES console into a Switch dock, so it was only natural that their next build would be based on Nintendo’s 16-bit SNES.

The Sinden Is a Light Gun for LCD TVs

The Sinden Is a Light Gun for LCD TVs
Among classic arcade and console games, light gun shooters are some of my favorites. The problem is that the technology used for older video game systems required the scanning beam of a cathode ray picture tube to detect where you were pointing the light gun.
