Ok.. JUST cool… Someone crammed a fully-loaded NES into the body of one it’s own carts..
There’s something just a little mind-bending about a game cartridge that isn’t a cartridge at all, and instead is a console itself. If you think about the concept too hard, it might just cause a rift in the space-time continuum.
I spent a great deal of my youth playing our Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Playing games like Super Mario Bros., Metroid, the Legend of Zelda, Mega Man and Final Fantasy. I whiled away both summer, fall, winter and spring days and nights trying to perfect my strategy against Metal Man or leveling up my Fighters, White Mage and Black Mage for that final battle with Ganon. I lived, breathed and ate that NES. Its controller has emblazoned itself onto my subconscious for all eternity.
So you can imagine my glee when I saw this NES Controller Backpack. This officially licensed Nintendo backpack is comprised of one large main compartment, three external zipper pockets and two net storage pockets. The backpack features a padded inside panel (good for toting around a laptop…or your NES console) and heavy-duty padded shoulder straps for comfort as you tote around your vintage Nintendo Power Magazine collection.
The bag measures about 12″ X 17″ X 6″ and features the original NES controller design prominently displayed on the back. It can all be yours for 40 Rupees (or $40).
Hackers never stop, always thinking of new ways to bring functionality to old products. The original NES controller seems to be a never ending source of ideas for the hack/mod crowd. Now we have an NES controller that houses…NES games. Check out the link to see how it’s done!
