NES clone all inside of an NES Controller

There have been a few NES controller mods, but one modder managed to fit a famiclone inside of his. The mod was made specifically for his girlfriend for her birthday, since she is a big NES fan. Which also means he was a little more thorough to make sure it was right just for her.

The famiclone comes with several built-in games, so many actually that he was extremely disappointed when he couldn't manage to play them all before giving it to his girlfriend. With the controller itself, by using the 2nd player control port you can also use a Lightgun.

Coffee is one of those things a great deal of us can't live without and there are few things more disgusting than when your hot coffee goes cold. I don't care if you do on occasion buy the Starbucks cold coffee, if it was meant to be hot your face shrivels with disgust the second you taste that cooling coffee.

Many studies have popped up and said that for men, the heat from sitting your laptop directly on your lap could end up causing infertility.  Which means if you like lounging on the couch with your laptop, it might be time to consider getting a stand for it.

This new model from Belkin is wide enough to even hold the larger 17” laptops.  It also features an adjustable height, to get your laptop at a comfortable angle for you.

This isn't out just yet and they don't say when it will be, but it is listed as coming soon.  Once it is released it will be sold for $39.99.
