This Coffee Table Thinks It's An NES Controller

Illustration for article titled This Coffee Table Thinks Its An NES Controller

How cute! We love it when furniture has delusions of gaming hardware. Well, the joke's on us, because this particular coffee table does triple duty, storage gobs of video game paraphernalia and functioning as a working NES controller in addition to its coffee tabling duties. Creator Kyle tipped us off today to let us know the whole thing is finished, with helpful how-to posts and video of the thing in action embedded within the celebratory completion post. He even got a girl to go near it and she doesn't look scared. Nice goin, Kyle!

Size-modding an actual NES controller isn't that hard. Making it Wii VC ready is a more difficult, but it's still pretty cool!

Despite the difficulty of hitting A+B at the same time without adding a foot (or two) to handle it, the biggest difficulty would be keep my cats off it while I'm playing a NES game. I can see getting killed in Metal Gear when one of them pounces on the A button while I'm sneaking around.
