… And it works. Why? Well why the hell not? Also, where the hell does someone get that kind of LEGO, especially gray and black?!
If you owned an NES, games didn’t always start the first time, so there was this idea— no one really knows where it started, but it spread like wildfire way before the world wide web, that when your NES was being picky, you had to “blow the dust out” so it could get a clean connection. The fact is though, that this was just a placebo and blowing into the cartridge usually did more harm than good.
Sure, those old NES games might not have been as good as you remember, but at least it’s free. You can still pretend to blow the cartridge first, if you want.

Hardcore video game collectors will pay big bucks for all kinds of incredibly rare pieces of video game history, but $55,000 for a yellow NES Legend of Zelda prototype cartridge? Not with a prototype version of the game, but a prototype version of what would later be a shiny gold NES cartridge.
While sales of the Nintendo 3DS haven’t been bad, they haven’t been great either. So Nintendo comes out with garish new colors and now a larger screen, but this is what would really get people, especially those in their 30s to pony up for a 3DS— a version with the look of a classic NES.
It would have been awesome enough to just make a wooden NES controller coffee table, but Charles Lushear took the extra step of making it an actual functional NES controller. This thing… might actually take the place of the NES Advantage as the best NES controller ever.
