The original Nintendo Entertainment System controller is a thing of beauty, an exercise in simple elegance and efficiency. Apparently that's exactly what Reddit user Cybergern's friend Jocke was looking for in a coffee table, so he built this.

With only $200 in materials and 70-100 hours of labor, Jocke transformed pieces of wood and some electronics into this gorgeous piece of art/furniture. Not only does it have plenty of built-in storage for video games from any era, it also connects up to his NES, making it perfect for players that thought the original Xbox controller was a little on the small size.
