NES Bed Will Make You Dream in 8-Bit
Whoever made these NES pillowcases, bed sheet and comforter should make himself known. Preferably on Etsy, with a thousand more of these ready to be sold. Awesome shield by the way. Perhaps a Paladin retires in this bed.

Grand Theft Auto on the NES Features Low Res Blood, Tanooki Suit

Grand Theft Auto on the NES Features Low Res Blood, Tanooki Suit
Video games have really come a long way, especially when it comes to marketing. For those too young to remember, CollegeHumor made a totally radical fake commercial for Grand Theft Auto on the NES. As ridiculous as the fake GTA was, the commercial freaked me out.

Nintendo Game Controller Synths Beep and Bleep Their Way Back From the Dead
I certainly don’t remember my old Nintendo controller making crazy sounds, but I actually rather like the idea of building synthesizers into old video game controllers. Gadget hacker Michael Rucci builds his audio mods into old electronic toys and other salvaged parts, but my personal faves are his Nintendo controller synths.

Headrest DVD Player Comes With NES, SNES Emulator: Your 25-Year Old Kids Will Love It
I don’t know a lot of kids, but I’m betting they’d prefer to play on the iPhone, Nintendo DS or PSP rather than the SNES or NES. If they even know what those two are. But I think there’s still a lot of us 80s kids that’ll find Chinavision’s all-in-one gadget a hoot.

The Cover Came First: Games Based on Famicase Art
While a lot of games probably started out with just a sketch of a landscape or of the main character, I doubt there’s many games out there where its cover art inspired the actual game. But that’s exactly what the members of TIGSource did, turning Famicase art into actual games.

Homemade Handyduo NES/SNES Portable Looks Like a Real Thing

Homemade Handyduo NES/SNES Portable Looks Like a Real Thing
You’ve gotta hand it to the casemodding community. Despite the fact that there are plenty of off-the shelf gadgets that let you play old NES and SNES games, the homebrew portable hits keep on coming. This time we have Sharon aka “LovableChevy” aka “The Bondo Queen” and her HandyDuo.

Super Eyeball Mario Bros.

Super Eyeball Mario Bros.
Well here’s a different way to play Super Mario Bros 2… with your eyeballs. The guys at Waterloo Labs rigged up an eye-tracking contraption using electrodes placed around each eye, then mapped through a custom circuit and a Single-Board RIO system to convert eye movements into joystick movements on the NES.

Rsvp to This NES Invite

Rsvp to This NES Invite
The largest, most unwieldy but also most awesome wedding invite I’ve ever seen: The children of the 80s, all grown up. I hope they have pixelated bouquets and jewelry as well.

NES Wooden Sculpture: Video Game Console as Art
We’ve featured Nintendo systems with wooden components before, but this NES is entirely made out of wood, with the exception of the strings used for the cables: It seems that the console – along with a wooden TV – was made for an exhibit.

Letcool Handheld Game Emulator Offers 2-Player Goodness in Your Pocket
The latest in handheld emulators, the Letcool N350JP tries to one-up other portables by adding on something they don’t offer – a pair of external controllers for two-player fun. The compact system comes with emulators for the Super Nintendo, NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, but if it’s anything like the other portable emulators out there, you can bet there will be more emulators, and probably a Linux build for it at some point.

Super Mario Playing Cards: Bowser Really is a Joker

Super Mario Playing Cards: Bowser Really is a Joker
Looks like Nintendo is readying the release of sets of playing cards that feature all of our favorite characters on their faces. You’ll be able to choose from three sets, one with cartoony illustrations, another with 3D CGI versions, and the last with pixelated 8-bit characters – my personal favorite.

TRON-Themed NES Offers Glowy Goodness

TRON-Themed NES Offers Glowy Goodness
On the surface, this TRON-inspired NES mod doesn’t look like much. But when the lights go down, it’s like a Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner invited your console to a party. Once fully charged with black light, Thretris‘ modded NES really comes to life, glowing with a brightness that could only be bested if it were electroluminescent.

We don’t know what’s gotten into this black and white demon cat, but every time this guy tries to play with his NES controller, kitty goes ballistic.
