Custom NES Is Also A Magic Zelda Chest

Spain’s Mako Mod have made a replica of a Legend of Zelda chest. That’s also a working NES. Complete with Triforce that actually levitates.

Thanks to “an electromagnetic levitation technology, and a ‘near-field’ wireless transmission of electricity”, the Triforce spins around in thin air just like it does in the games. No strings, just science/magic.

Despite the NES console inside it, the chest itself is actually taking after Wind Waker, with the tribal art style of that game’s intro drawn on the sides of the machine.

It’s a one-off, not a commercial product, but if you feel like you absolutely must have it, you can try and bid on it here.

Very Cool,

That Triforce looks almost like it’s cell shaded. I wonder how they achieved that effect. It kind of looks like the corners have leds?

Also that auction states currently at 350,00 EUR I’m not positive but think maybe in Europe they use the , in place of the decimal which means it’s only $387 vs $38,750 haha. The first price is actually pretty reasonable, the latter might be a tad over priced :p
