Somedays, I just wish that Nintendo would throw in the towel on the hardware business and just make games for other platforms. Can you imagine being able to play all your favorite Mario games on your iPhone, for instance?
Ok, I need one of these on my desk. Now. This awesome full-color sandstone Super Mario Bros. sculpture is actually rendered on a 3D printer. Metin Seven of Seven’s Heaven created his Mariorama sculpture using Shapeways’ 3D printing technology.
While I personally wasn’t that into Duck Hunt, the classic shooting game on the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System, I have to say that this piece of art that combines pixel art with traditional art is lots of fun.
YouTube user ProtoDojo wanted a more precise way of controlling his favorite iPad game Reckless Racing. Fortunately for him, he has the modding chops to actually do something about it. So he came up with RoboTouch, which now allows him to play games on the iPad using a NES controller.
The other day, Lambert spotted a brief clip of Super Mario Bros. updated with modernized audio. Turns out the same guy put together a video with a bunch of other games updated with “ULTRA NEXTGEN AAA Sound Design,” as he calls it.
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.
If you thought playing Super Mario Bros. was too easy, why not flip your world on its ear, and play the game backwards. No, I don’t mean starting the game on World 8-4, I mean really play it backwards.
Kinect hacker Yankeyan is at it again. Last time, he made a lightsaber with his Kinect. This time, he’s playing Super Mario Bros. – as Mario.
By taking his physical movements and converting them into running and jumping movements for Mario, he’s managed to create the first controller-free version of the game that I’ve seen.
It took crafter Sewsew-a-Gogo almost two years to create this Punch-Out!! art, and it looks like it was well worth the wait.
When you first look at this thing from a distance, it doesn’t look like much, but when you realize that it took her over 80,000 cross-stitches to bring this 12″ x 28″ piece to fruition.
The sharp eyes over at GameSniped spotted another rare gem at eBay. If you still have your NES console and a couple of driving or flying games, dust ’em off and bid for the Video Game Super Chair controller.
GeekUnique’s formula for making geeky iPhone/iPod Touch docks is simple: if it’s a classic gaming peripheral, it’s a dock. Hence the shop’s N64 controller dock, Atari cartridge dock and PlayStation controller dock. However, that formula may have failed with this one:
