NES inside a controller with cartridge compatibility


[Tony] sent in this Nintendo hack. It’s a fully functioning NES with Composite output inside an old school controller. On the back it’s got a cartridge connector, so you can play normal games, there’s a port for a second player/light gun, and for extra bling, the Nintendo logo is backlit. To pull it off, he stuffed a Super Joy III – A.K.A. famiclone inside the controller, did a marathon of soldering for the cartridge connector, and used the now unused controller wires to carry the video and second controller signals.

Yes, this has been around for a while, but I dig it.

  1. they say that you can now software emulate a sega into a watch sized device… which really just makes me suprised that wasn’t the case here.

  2. Ugh. Guys, this is NOT Ben’s work. I’m a moderator at his forums, and this project was made by a member there. So please, give credit where it’s due, people! :P
